A black woman with curly black hair in a cloud around her head stares straight out. Pinks, yellows, purples, and oranges play with the browns in her face. Her light brown eyes are behind glasses with rectangular frames. A white scarf is wrapped around her neck in a V. Behind her are flecks of color that almost resemble small flowers. They draw from the colors in her face, mixing in daubs of green.

Deliberate Compassion

PORTRAITS FROM THERESA BROWNGOLD'S ART AS SOCIAL INQUIRY: HEALTH CARE

Art as Social Inquiry is a safe place to get intimate with things that make us uncomfortable: struggle, death, grief, responsibility. The portraits don't just tell us stories, they offer us a way to feel them. They ask us to step out of ourselves and into the experiences of others. What we find there will change us.
