Rachel Kay Stevens Therapy Center Art Show and Auction

Occupational Therapy students in the College of Health Professions at UTHSC will host the third-annual Rachel Kay Stevens Therapy Center Art Show and Auction to benefit the Rachel Kay Stevens Therapy Center, the only student run, pro bono occupational therapy clinic in the Mid-South.

Themed “The Greatest Art Show,” the event will be July 25 from 4-6 p.m. at the Madison Plaza Lobby, 920 Madison Avenue. It is free and open to the public. Attendees will have the opportunity to bid on artwork created by children, and purchase artwork created by adults. Some of the artwork for auction was created by children or adults in the community who have received therapy sessions from UTHSC OT students.

Community partners, including Le Bonheur Children’s Hospital, Shelby County Schools, Germantown Schools, Concorde Academy, Ronald McDonald House, Southern Reins, Simple Strokes, and JoyLife901, are some of the organizations that UTHSC OT students have worked with to create artwork for the event. Specific pieces will illustrate reflections from UTHSC OT students of their therapy sessions with the artist of that painting.

This year’s theme is based on the movie “The Greatest Showman,” which tells
the story of the creation of the Barnum & Bailey Circus. Second-year OT students
bonded over the movie, after going to see it during their first semester as occupational
therapy students. The art show will feature carnival-themed elements, including
decorations, a photo booth with carnival props, glitter tattoos, face painting done by OT
students, popcorn, and a character dressed as a circus ringmaster.
