Watching Hands: Artists Respond to Keeping Well

Watching Hands: Artists Respond to Keeping Well showcases the work of six artists who interpret the act of handwashing in innovative and unexpected ways. The artists stretch the boundaries of current public health campaigns through painting, drawing, graphic design, sculpture, installation and new media. Making the connection between handwashing and keeping well, the work – all new for this exhibition – ranges from the humorous to the spiritual. Watching Hands is organized by the David J. Sencer CDC Museum and is made possible by a generous grant from Georgia-Pacific Professional to the CDC Foundation. September 24, 2011 - January 13, 2012
