Scarred for Life: Remnants of Trauma into Objects of Beauty is an exhibition of photographs, narratives, and scarred-tissue monoprints that together tell the stories of events—often traumatic ones—that have transformed lives.

Ted Meyer offers the exhibition as a complement to his Collaborating Across Borders 2015 presentation on patients’ perspectives on healing. CAB V, the premier North American conference on interprofessional education and interprofessional collaborative practice in health and social care, will be held September 29–October 2 in Roanoke.

“My hope,” Meyer says of the scars, “is to turn these lasting monuments, often thought of as unsightly, into things of beauty.”

The artist will speak at 6:15 p.m. The event is free and open to the public. Registration is encouraged.
