The Flammable HEART Exhibition

The second week of August each year is dedicated to recognizing the service and contributions of Community, Migrant, Homeless and Public Housing Health Centers in providing access to affordable, high quality, cost-effective health care to medically vulnerable and underserved people in the U.S. “Celebrating America’s Health Centers: Serving Locally, Leading Nationally” is our theme for National Health Center Week 2011.

Howard Liebers of Marble Road, whose mission is to connect people who have complex illnesses with the resources they need to help them improve their lives, has put together what looks like a fantastic show.  Each artist in the show has had significant experiences with their own health or the health of their loved ones, which in turn influenced their work.

A few of the artists have been featured on Street Anatomy before such as David Foox and Teagan White.  So if you’re in New York August 7-11, make sure to stop by the show!
