The performing arts will again take center stage starting this month in the Richard J. Mazurek, M.D., Medical Education Commons.
The second season of Arts in the Atrium gets under way Oct. 27 from noon to 1 p.m. when the Wayne State University School of Medicine Writing Workshop presents readings from students Amanda Waterman-Torres, Jessica Heselschwerdt, Sunali Wadehra, Beth Stallman and Miriam Levine, M.D., and Theresa Vettese, M.D., assistant professor of Internal Medicine and faculty advisor of the workshop. The students and instructor will read their poetry, short stories and sketches.
The performance will take place on the first floor of the Mazurek Medical Education Commons, in the general reading area in front of the Shiffman Medical Library.
Arts in the Atrium is sponsored by the Shiffman Medical Library and the School of Medicine. The series of seasonal performances offers a period of art and relaxation for students, staff, faculty and the community. The programs are designed to highlight the artistic talents of the students, staff and faculty of both the library and the School of Medicine.
Sandra Martin, assistant director of the Wayne State University Shiffman Medical Library, and Ron Spalding, administrative officer for the Office of the Vice Dean for Medical Education, developed the program last year to bring more art into the medical school’s newest building.
In December, Martin said, the Ultrasounds, a School of Medicine a capella group, will perform.
