The Third Hand: Art Therapy at Cleveland Clinic

May 8 - June 22, 2018
Julia and Larry Pollock Gallery – between Q and G buildings
Cleveland Clinic main campus

The term “the third hand” refers to the assistance an art therapist offers during the creative process in an art therapy session. In celebration of the Arts & Medicine Institute’s 10-year anniversary, The Third Hand features artwork made by patients and caregivers during art therapy sessions at Cleveland Clinic. Serving on the frontlines of patient care, art therapists encourage self-expression through painting, drawing, collage and other interventions. They provide patients and caregivers with specific tools to better manage the anxiety, pain, fear and emotional distress that often accompanies a hospital visit. Artworks resulting from these therapy sessions act as visual documents of the creator’s emotional journey. Inspired by a young artist’s experience as a long-term patient, this exhibition highlights the courageous stories of the individuals behind each image to celebrate the importance of artistic expression and the impact of art therapy on the patient experience.
