Sabrina Nelson’s Sound Medicine delves into the profound connection between spirit, motion, and intimacy within the realm of healing. Influenced by Yoruba Religion, alongside Eastern and African philosophies, her multidimensional approach transcends traditional boundaries, encompassing painting, sculpture, objects, performance, and installations.

With over 35 years of professional experience and a dedication to education, Sabrina aims to inspire and empower others through her art. As a studio art teacher at the Detroit Institute of Arts and a staff member at the College for Creative Studies, she instills in her students the belief that art is not only a creative outlet but also a tool for healing and transformation.

Through Sound Medicine, viewers are invited to contemplate the innate power within themselves and their communities to heal. Each stroke of the brush, or stroke of the bow, serves as a reminder of the abundant connections available to us for healing-resources found within ourselves, each other, and the natural world.
