Authentic Moments Art Exhibit

Authentic Moments Art Exhibit at Sacred Heart Hospital

Allentown, PA – Sacred Heart Hospital's Behavioral Health Unit presents an art exhibit entitled Authentic Moments on display for viewing from 9:00 a.m. to 8:00 p.m. June 16 through 22, 2014 at Sacred Heart Hospital, 421 Chew Street, Allentown.  This collection of artwork, created by individuals that have participated in Sacred Heart’s art therapy program, is to honor the courage it requires to be vulnerable enough to allow their expressed pain, fear, joy, struggles and hope to be visible and felt. The artists, in various stages of recovery, allowed the creative process to be the vehicle of expression without fear of judgment or consequence.  The art exhibit is free and open to the public.   

Art therapy is just one of the services provided by Sacred Heart Hospital’s Behavioral Health team.  It provides a forum in a safe setting where individuals are invited to use various art materials as authentically as possible to express themselves, address stressors, and explore feelings and defenses in order to engage techniques to promote grounding, focus, insight and empowerment. Because the person becomes an active participant in their own work, they have an opportunity to become more aware, connected and accountable to and for themselves.
