Humanities office plans art show to display creative talents at School of Medicine

The UMKC School of Medicine’s Sirridge Office of Humanities and Bioethics is planning an event for students, staff and faulty to show off their creative sides. Participants in the Beyond Human Factor Art Show will have the opportunity to showcase their artwork, photography and poetry.

This year’s event is scheduled to take place at 5:30 p.m. at the Diastole Scholars Center on Nov. 9.

The program is an extension of the office’s printed publication, Human Factor, which celebrates the connection between art, humanities and the practice of medicine. The magazine provides an outlet for the School of Medicine community to display its creative and imaginative talents. It is typically published each fall.

Art show participants do not have to be previously published in the Human Factor to take part.

Anyone interested in sharing their artwork, photography or in signing up to participate in the poetry reading during the year’s art show should contact Sarah McKee, senior office support specialist, at
