John Zwara:Artist, Patient, Wanderer

Discover the paintings of a wandering artist, whose schizophrenia diagnosis landed him in Indiana’s Central State Hospital for the Insane in 1938. While institutionalized, John Zwara painted the works on display as a form of therapy. Hear from a curator and art therapist to learn more about Zwara’s life and work, the benefits of art therapy, and the history of mental health in Indianapolis.

Presented by Indiana Medical History Museum and IUPUI Herron School of Art and Design-Art Therapy
