Every collection tells a story; the works of indigenous art collected by Dr. Karl Menninger are no exception. Explore "The Art & Science of Healing" with graduate student Braden Conrad-Hiebner, who will share insights into the objects on view as well as the story behind the collection: what sparked Menninger’s interest, the philosophy that guided him, and the relationship between Menninger’s collection and his approach to treating mental health conditions. As part of his research, Conrad-Hiebner conducted original interviews with Menninger’s surviving relatives and colleagues.
