Join us for a presentation by Dr. Ian Koebner, assistant professor in the department of anesthesiology and pain medicine at UC Davis, exploring the potential role of museums as partners in public health. Koebner will speak about his research on Art Rx, an innovative collaboration initiated in 2013 between the Crocker Art Museum and the Integrative Pain Management Program at UC Davis. Koebner’s talk will cover pain research, the specialized experiences offered through Art Rx, and the philosophy of aesthetics and museology. Learn about the true power of art and community, and how museums can be places of healing. Presented by the Crocker’s Art Access Committee.
