2014 Inaugural Colloquium
Danny Broadway, 2014 Artist-in-Residence
Danny Broadway was the artist in residence at Enlivening and Enriching the Tree of Caring Knowledge, a colloquium held by the Anne Boykin Institute for the Advancement of Caring in Nursing, September 2014, at the Christine E. Lynn College of Nursing, Florida Atlantic University, in Boca Raton, Florida. Throughout the colloquium, Broadway painted, listening, reflecting, and being inspired by the rich dialogue focused on caring science. The exquisite art you see is the creation that flowed from the unity of Broadway’s heart, mind, and spirit.

Broadway has a very real gift of healing through his art. In the painting, the tree represents a safe place, where all help in the process of healing. Scholarship is represented by the trunk. The figures are all connected one to another and to the tree, secure amid the storms of life. Healing occurs as they climb higher and higher amid the branches of the tree. Sunlight streams through the branches, illuminating the spiritual aspect that comes from creation.
Broadway creates his art with uncompromised passion while seeking to communicate with people everywhere. Several of the country’s most respected venues have sought to feature his work and businesses have commissioned him to create original works to commemorate important events. In recent years, Broadway has been focusing on serving private collectors by showcasing in galleries and museum exhibitions nation-wide.
