Checking in at the Art Hospital

Often the biggest step an artist can take is moving from hobby to vocation. Josephine McRobbie tells the story of one artist, Mark Rice, and his transition.

Rice is a musician in the groups Magnolia Electric Company, The Impossible Shapes, and the Coke Dares, and a painter.

Bloomington, Indiana’s Art Hospital will be moving to smaller space in August. The new location will continue to feature art exhibitions and will house nine artist studios. And in October, visit Indianapolis’s Big Car Gallery as they showcase the work of the Art Hospital staff.

Josephine McRobbie

Born and raised in southeast Australia, Josephine moved to Bloomington in 1996. She graduated from Indiana University in 2007 with a B.A. in Journalism and Sociology. She is currently WFIU's broadcast assistant and arts reporter.
