“My Grandpa’s Hands” by doctorate in occupational therapy student Sarah Weinblatt will be on display.

As part of Jefferson’s Humanities Week, all students, faculty and staff are invited to stop by the “Who Are We?” art exhibition, which will be on view Wednesday, April 25 through Friday, April 27 in the Hamilton Building lobby on the Center City Campus.

The exhibit will feature artwork by 14 Jefferson students illustrating their passions, dreams and ambitions as part of the University’s continued commitment to encourage student engagement in the arts and humanities in recognition of their capacity to foster essential skills related to healthcare, including observation, critical thinking, self-reflection and empathy.

On Thursday, April 26, the Jefferson community is welcome to commemorate the artists with refreshments at “Celebration of the Humanities.”

Featured at the event will be contributors to Jefferson’s annual literary and arts journal, Inside Out, as well as the inaugural recipients of the Asano Humanities and Health Certificate–a co-curricular program that rewards sustained engagement in arts and humanities activities throughout the academic year.
