Watching Hands: Artists Respond to Keeping Well
September 24, 2011 – January 13, 2012

Watching Hands: Artists Respond to Keeping Well showcases the work of six artists who interpret the act of hand washing in innovative and unexpected ways. Recent H1N1 prevention campaigns have highlighted the importance of hand washing as one of the most effective ways to stay well. Sponsored by Georgia Pacific and the CDC Foundation, and curated by Louise E. Shaw, CDC Museum Curator, this exhibition will stretch the boundaries of current public health campaigns through painting, drawing, graphic design, sculpture, installation, and new media. Making the connection between hand washing and keeping well, the work—all new for this exhibition--ranges from the humorous to the spiritual. The artists include: John Bankston (San Francisco); Didi Dunphy (Athens, GA); Joe Peragine (Atlanta); Katherine L. Ross (Chicago); Laura Splan (Brooklyn, NY); and James Victore (Brooklyn, NY).
