Art in the Library
Our library is honored to present a new virtual exhibit of photographs by a renowned photographer and psychoanalyst, Jon K. Meyer, MD. This new portfolio called Inner Darkness “renders the devastation of being haunted by guilt, depression, and personal ghosts.” Dr. Meyer’s earlier exhibit In the Mind’s Eye: A Portfolio of a Human Journey was on display in our library for six months in 2019 (two of the prints have been graciously donated to the BPSI art collection). While the BPSI building remains closed during the pandemic, we are planning to showcase each of the eight images in the series, accompanied by T.S.Eliot’s quotes, on BPSI’s virtual and social media platforms. CLICK HERE to visit the virtual gallery. Follow the links to read more About the Artist and Artist’s Statement about Inner Darkness. Please note: All images in the virtual galleries are copyrighted by Jon Meyer © Contact Jon Meyer at email@example.com to purchase custom prints.
