Can Art Save Lives? A Conversation with Dr. Eric Avery and Adam DelMarcelle
Thursday, October 25, 2018, 5:30 PM, DeMeester Recital Hall 


These exhibitions brings together the work of two activist artists, Eric Avery and Adam DelMarcelle, as they bear witness, and call us to action as the opioid epidemic claims the lives of 197 people a day in the United States.

Eric Avery is an artist and psychiatrist with a long history of making art related to his medical work with refugees, human rights abuses, HIV/AIDS and Hepatitis C. During the time of HIV/AIDS, his prints captured truthful moments in the pandemic sweeping the world and his pioneering art medicine actions demystified HIV testing and AIDS care by conducting testing and exhibiting medical care in the gallery and art museum settings. He has tried to show how art can save lives.

Adam DelMarcelle’s prints and social art actions have been made in Pennsylvania, on the frontlines of the exploding opioid epidemic and have functioned to educate and mobilize community response through compelling his viewers to ask better questions and to always be suspect of the information given by those in power. After losing a brother to an opioid overdose, DelMarcelle committed his life to the betterment of his community through his work as an educator and artist.
