Welcome to IndyBuzz

IndyBuzz provides information about Central Indiana's most stimulating and thought provoking events -- discussions and conferences, art exhibitions, films, music performances. It tells you what's happening … explains why you should be part of what’s happening. More than an events calendar, though, IndyBuzz tries to make events more meaningful for participants by suggesting an article or two to read before the event, recommending books or websites that will be sources of further information after the event, and pointing out related events that are worth attending.

March 8 — The Art of Healing: Where Healthcare and Creativity Blend

Wishard Hospital is home to more than state-of-the-art healthcare. In 1914 Indiana’s leading artists worked together to create murals that would lift the spirits of the patients at City (now Wishard) Hospital.

When: Sunday March 8, 2:30 PM

Where: Myers Auditorium, Wishard Memorial Hospital 1001 West 10th St.


Hear Dean Craig Brater of the IU School of Medicine, Dr. Larry Cripe, oncologist at the IU Simon Cancer Center, and cancer survivor Jan Lucas-Grimm discuss how art facilitates healing by engaging an emotional response which can relieve stress and re-focus the mind. A brief tour of the 1914 murals follows the discussion.

In 1914, a group of renowned Hoosier artists painted murals for the benefit of patients at Wishard Memorial Hospital (then known as City Hospital). The IMA conservation department has been working to bring these murals back to their original condition since 2004, when they conserved a painting by Indiana African American artist William Edouard Scott. Since then, the conservation of several works by such Indiana artists as T. C. Steele, Clifton Wheeler, J. Ottis Adams and Wayman Adams has been completed. The exhibition includes a cleaned work by T. C. Steele, along with before and during treatment photographs, and a Carl Graf painting divided into partially cleaned and fully cleaned surfaces.
