CHI Memorial Foundation To Host 19th Annual Cam Busch Endowed Arts For Health Lecture Series

Tuesday, March 12, 2019

CHI Memorial Foundation and the Hunter Museum of American Art are co-presenting the 19th annual Cam Busch Endowed Arts for Health Lecture Series.  This year’s event will be Thursday, April 11 at the Hunter Museum of American Art.  Nashville singer/songwriter Steve Dean is the featured guest.  The reception will begin at 5 p.m. with pre-program performances by East Lake Expression Engine and Chattanooga Ballet, followed by Mr. Dean’s program at 6 p.m.

Mr. Dean has co-written nine number one hits for artists such as George Strait, Lee Greenwood, Reba McEntire and The Oakridge Boys.  He is also part of Operation Song, traveling with Don Goodman to Chattanooga every Wednesday to write with veterans from World War II through Iraq, helping them tell their story through the healing power of music.  As a singer/songwriter, Mr.

Dean gives his audience a behind-the-scenes look at the inspiration for, and why, these songs were written. He also discusses the art of songwriting’s impact on the healing process.
 
The Cam Busch Endowed Arts for Health Lecture Series is part of CHI Memorial’s Arts in Healthcare Program which uses performing and visual arts to enhance healing.  “We are excited to offer this year’s program with a focus on the impact of music. Songwriting, music education, and dance can transform the way life’s experiences are expressed and understood; songs have the power to inform our memories and feelings in ways that other forms of communication do not,” says Chyela Rowe, CHI Memorial Arts in Healthcare program coordinator, and registered drama therapist.
 
"CHI Memorial’s Arts in Healthcare program is an important component in our region’s vibrant arts community," officials said. "We are proud to announce the following organizations join us as Arts Partners for this event: AIM Center, ArtsBuild, AVA (Association for Visual Arts), Bessie Smith Cultural Center, Chattanooga Ballet, Chattanooga Symphony and Opera, Hart Gallery, Sculpture Fields and WTCI-PBS."
 
Individual tickets are $50. Tickets for active and retired military are $40. Admission includes heavy hors d’oeuvres, a host bar, a program featuring Mr. Dean and admission to the Hunter Museum of American Art.  Tickets may be purchased online at www.memorial.org/healingarts or by calling the CHI Memorial Foundation office at 423-495-4438.

Chattanooga's Shooting Epidemic

These shootings continue and something has to be done to try and stop them whether they are domestic, robbery or gang related.

This 21 age requirement would not include ammunition ... (click for more)
