Several years ago, Kerner Bobley was diagnosed with Rheumatoid Arthritis and Sjogren’s Syndrome, two autoimmune diseases. Step-by-step, she used a walking cane to explore The Woodlands Waterway Art Bench Collection as a sort-of private “art crawl” for herself—looking to the next bench as next week’s goal post. She also kept a journal about how the different artworks made her feel. After many weeks of walking, she reached the final art bench in the then 14-member collection. At this point, she no longer needed a cane to walk. It was an emotional turning point in her medical treatment plan, and, in the new relationship she had forged with public art. It was here the idea for ARTFEEL began.
Come join us in MAY at our next ARTFEEL as we brave the stage and share how art makes us feel!
