Elsewhere Museum has been awarded with funds for Art + HealthCare Residencies from the National Endowment for the Arts.

GREENSBORO, N.C. — Elsewhere Museum, 606 S. Elm St., has been awarded with $35,000 in funds for Art + HealthCare Residencies from the National Endowment for the Arts.

Four national artists will be invited for two-week, funded research residencies embedded at the Union Square Nursing Campus, 124 E. Gate City Blvd., a state-of-the-art clinical and simulation training facility utilized by the University of North Carolina at Greensboro, North Carolina A&T State University, Guilford Technical Community College and Cone Health Systems, the museum said. It added that artists at the intersection of art, science and human care will engage with students, faculty and healthcare providers to deepen research into health technologies and clinical training. Artists will receive studios at the campus, observe simulations and take part in Elsewhere’s residency community. Following the residency, each will propose site-specific, public art projects for a new-work commission.

“Artists working in the healthcare field are bringing critical and experiential ideas into patient-centered care” said Elsewhere’s Executive Director George Scheer. “By situating and supporting artists in an advanced training facility, we hope to foster creative insight into the way care is taught and practiced at the campus and in our neighborhood.”
