Hui-Chui Ying is an Art Professor at Myers School of Art on the University of Akron campus. Professor Ying says "The best part of being an artist is that it allows one to discover, to examine, and to respond to life experiences. We enjoy our routine lives and take them for granted until the day arrives when they are interrupted by illness, death, war, or a sudden natural disaster. It is such an amazing thing that each one of us has the inner compassion to give and share of ourselves and our material goods. We learn to nurture and to embrace one another, to cope with the loss of loved ones, and to endure obstacles. The best medicine for healing the wounds that life throws at us is the offer of hope and courage. Helping one other to develop empathy, tolerance, patience and humility is one of life's greatest gifts."
