Artwork created by seven UMSON faculty, staff, and students is featured in 1807: An Art and Literary Journal, which launched today. The printed anthology was curated, edited, and produced by members of the UMB community.
“Someone once asked me what a university of health care professionals, lawyers, and social workers has to do with the arts and culture,” said Jennifer B. Litchman, MA, who is editor-in-chief of the journal as well as senior vice president for external relations, special assistant to the president, and chair of UMB’s Council for the Arts & Culture. “We founded the Council for the Arts & Culture to promote the rich history of UMB and celebrate the creative talents of our University community, which we then hoped would raise awareness of the link between the arts and sciences. The 60-plus pages of 1807 make that link crystal clear.”
UMSON faculty, staff, and students whose artwork is showcased in the journal include:
- Amy Bailey, general assistant
- Lori Edwards, DrPH, RN, PHCNS-BC, assistant professor
- Cynthia Hollis, MBA, research administrator
- Christyn Gaa, student
- Rebecca Meyerson, student
- Kathleen Michael, PhD, RN, CRRN
- Kathy Strauss, laboratory specialist
Additionally, Meyerson contributed to the review team.
Hard copies also will be made available in the Health Sciences and Human Services Library.
