Art, music and autism exhibition on display at Michigan Medicine

Pouring My Heart Out by Juliette Hemingway.

In Juliette Hemingway’s work, viewers can imagine the grumbling tones of a saxophone or the sharp lines of a trombone. The sound is inside the musicians.

You may not know the details of their experience or understand it, but it’s visceral. That is what jazz is in Hemingway’s work.

It is the instinctual part of her life that she gives to viewers as a visual excerpt: a life that revolves around healing, autism, creativity and awareness.

Jazz and the blue-hued musicians give you a sense of the deep-rooted experiences of her son and what it is to live with autism, and for her, straining to look into his secret world. Hemingway is based in Aurora, Colorado, but you can check out her work currently on display at Michigan Medicine.

Where: Gifts of Art Gallery – University Hospital Main Corridor, Floor 2.

When: 8 a.m. – 8 p.m. daily through June 7
