The Art of Conversation Series continues on Thursday, July 21 with Matthew Conboy creator of the ‘Start with Art’ Program – Creating new art collectors, one baby at a time. The presentation will take place at the Rahr-West Art Museum, beginning at 6:00pm.
Beginning on January 1st, 2015, every baby born at The Midwife Center for Birth & Women's Health, St. Clair Hospital, and UPMC Mercy began life as an art collector. The program continues in 2016 and each month a local emerging artist will create an image that will then be given to almost 275 babies. This program was developed by Matthew Conboy, who teaches media arts at Robert Morris University.
Mr. Conboy will share his experiences in creating ‘Start with Art,’ illustrate some of the benefits he sees in the program, and will give insight into how similar programs may be started throughout the globe, including here in Manitowoc County. Members of our medical and art communities are strongly encouraged to attend.
