It's Museum Monday, and we are excited to announce that you can now "visit" our Art of the Cure Exhibit from home! This exhibit highlights the origins of Saranac Lake’s rich history in the arts. The Trudeau Sanatorium and the Study and Craft Guild offered groundbreaking occupational therapy programs to tuberculosis patients, many of whom went on to become accomplished artists, writers, and craftspeople.
We hope you can come visit the exhibit in person soon, but for now, this virtual version of the exhibit contains many of the sights and sounds (but unfortunately, not smells!) of the Art of the Cure. All week long we'll be sharing posts related to Occupational Therapy and its use with tuberculosis patients, and its legacy in Saranac Lake today!
To visit the exhibit, simply click the button belowand scroll down or use the buttons to navigate the different "exhibit cases" and learn from home!
We look forward to sharing more about this fascinating history all week long!
