The arts can - and should - provide a place of learning and healing for a community.

Here in Chattanooga, how the Hunter Museum of American Art connects the arts and health for the community benefits people from all walks of life - including artists and health care professionals.

This work at the Hunter received renewed attention during the pandemic - but it began years earlier.

As the Hunter turns 70 this year, we examine this work in our latest conversation on the museum’s history, legacy and impact.

- Adera Causey is curator of education at the Hunter.

- Dr. Mukta Panda is professor of medicine - and assistant dean for student education and wellbeing - at the University of Tennessee College of Medicine Chattanooga.

- Chyela Rowe is the coordinator of arts therapies and wellbeing at CHI Memorial Hospital.

The next arts health and social justice program at the Hunter for the public is Thursday, March 9th at 6 PM.
