The Waiting Room

17 01 2012

The Waiting Room is the brainchild of artists Stephanie Lanter, Bruce Scherting, Marguerite Perret, and Robin Lasser, who conceived it as a creative collaboration among artists, writers, and the community. The Waiting Room project addresses women’s health and health care issues and approaches the social, cultural, and political discourses surrounding issues of health. The exhibition portion, The Waiting Room: lost and found, is currently on view at the Alice C. Sabatini Gallery in Topeka through March 16. The book, A Waiting Room of One’s Own, edited by Sarah Smarsh, will be released at an event on January 27 at the Lawrence Arts Center.

For more details about the exhibition and the forthcoming book, check out The Waiting Room’s website.

Thanks so much for listing our project on your blog! Just a quick correction, “The Waiting Room: Lost and Found” installation is the brain child of all the principal artists: Stephanie Lanter, Bruce Scherting, Robin Lasser and Marguerite Perret. It was equally imagined and realized as a collaborative project much in the tradition of feminist art projects of the past and present. The project also involves community participation, and the involvement of many additional artists as creative partners and in the making of contemporary “Milagros” which are also on view as a corollary exhibit. The book, “A Waiting Room of One’s Own: Contexts for the Waiting Room,” was compiled and edited by Sarah Smarsh, and is now available! Visit for more information. Or join our Facebook group:
