This selection of prints, photographs, posters and magazines focusing on nursing will be on display at the Bayly Art Museum to honor the 100th anniversary of the University of Virginia School of Nursing.

The exhibition includes pieces by such masters of photography as W. Eugene Smith, Margaret Bourke-White and Weegee, and by powerful printmakers, including Kyra Markham. These artists found inspiration in the courage, talent, and compassion that make nurses among the few authentic heroes of our time.

The title of the exhibition comes from a poem by Veneta Masson, an alumna of the School of Nursing who has been both a poet and nurse. She will read her poetry at the tea reception on Friday, April 20.

A panel discussion with Arlene Keeling, associate director of the Center for Nursing; Johanna R. Drucker, Robertson Professor of Media; Phyllis Leffler, director of the Institute for Public History will be moderated by Stephen Margulies, curator of Works on Paper. The Tuesday March 27 panel discussion is at 5:30 p.m. in Campbell Hall, Room 153.
