Gallery exhibit celebrates 60 years for College of Nursing at BYU

In celebration of 60 years of nursing education at Brigham Young University, the Education in Zion Gallery in the Joseph F. Smith Building is opening a new exhibition in conjunction with the College of Nursing.

Located on the second floor of the gallery, the exhibition, “The Healer’s Art: A Celebration of the College of Nursing,” will open to the public Tuesday, April 10, beginning at noon. Refreshments, blood pressure screenings and a service project to make fleece blankets that will be donated to the local association of Sexual Assault Nurse Examiners will be featured throughout the afternoon in the gallery.

The Education in Zion Gallery is open weekdays from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m., with extended hours on Monday and Wednesday evenings until 9 p.m. and Saturdays from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. For more information, visit the gallery’s webpage at educationinzion.byu.edu.

“We believe the art of healing reaches out to all people, wherever they might be," said said Beth Cole, dean of the College of Nursing. "This is a wonderful opportunity for us to celebrate Christ’s mission and nursing together with our fellow students and community.”

"The Healer’s Art" will explore the art and science of nursing featuring stories from war fronts and humanitarian service missions — both global and domestical. Faculty, alumni and current students share their experiences in the nursing profession by telling their stories of service and learning.

“I am especially proud of the pictures depicting students and faculty working together to bring the blessings of the Healer’s Art to many areas of the earth,” said Karen Lundberg, a professor from the College of Nursing. “Over the past decade, the College of Nursing has developed a unique world nursing program.”

“The exhibition title, taken from the hymn ‘Lord, I would Follow Thee,’ references Christ as the Master Healer,” said Heather Seferovich, coordinating curator for the gallery. “Yet frequently He answers prayers by working through others. Sometimes we may be the ones receiving help, but other times we are the ones giving assistance.”

The exhibition’s logo shows a younger hand holding an older hand to illustrate how individuals can give and receive comfort to one another throughout life.

“A helping hand can also be a healing hand,” Seferovich said.
