Greensboro -- "Recovering My Soul: Reinventing My Life past Katrina" will hang at The Moses H. Cone Memorial Hospital from Aug. 28- Sept. 30. "Recovering My Soul…" features the works of Bennett College Artist in Residence Jacquelyn Hughes Mooney as well as Vita Jones, Sterline Ritchie Lacey, Marcia Walls, Kichea Burt and Karen Bethea and featured pieces from a traveling exhibit on Katrina.

"One thing I have discovered as this story unfolds is the overwhelming number of people who have something to say," Mooney says. "Not only citizens of the Gulf Coast living elsewhere, but friends, family and others who stood by in horror and worry for their loved ones who where valiantly trying to survive those tragic days."

This exhibit features about a dozen pieces of art, including photography. It is the latest exhibit in the Community Art program, which displays the works of a different artist from the community each month. The works are displayed along the main hall off of patient admitting on the east side of the hospital.

"Art and healthcare are a natural marriage," Shawn Houck, Corporate Events Specialist says. "Healthcare can heal the body and art can heal the spirit."

There will be an observation at Bennett College Wednesday night, August 29 at 6:30. It's called "Katrina: A Time of Prayer, Hope & Victory."
