Dance of Freedom – Art and Eating Disorders Exhibition 2014
Art and Eating Disorders is about expressing those parts of the experience of living with an eating disorder that are difficult to put into words. Creating art and reflecting on the art products and processes helps people increase awareness of self, cope with symptoms, stress and traumatic experiences; enhance cognitive abilities; and enjoy the life-affirming pleasures of making art.
The Foundation’s Art and Eating Disorders program displays artwork created through art therapy in community spaces to raise awareness about eating disorders and the individuals that are impacted by them. The artwork runs themes relating to eating disorders, recovery, and body image.
The Emily Program Foundation teamed up with Dance Endeavors studio in Bloomington, MN to discuss healthy relationships with food and body image. The adolescent dancers ranging from ages 12-17 took a creative approach to self-love by writing on studio mirrors to reflect what they appreciate about themselves.
Thank you Dance Endeavors!

The Foundation proudly supports the process of healing through art and shares this with the community to increase education and awareness around eating disorders. Expression through artwork allows those living with an eating disorder to express themselves in ways that are often difficult to put into words. This artwork enhances the public’s understanding of eating disorders as a serious illness that impacts individuals, families, and communities around our country.
We will be debuting our new Audiovisual Project on stories of individuals who used the healing powers of art in their eating disorder recovery. Click here for more information.
