    MDArtArt MD, a nonprofit group of University of Miami/Jackson Memorial Hospital physicians who promote health  through art, is exhibiting its tobacco cessation art exhibit “Smoke Out” in the Student Suite of the Shalala Student Center through May 13.

    All the pieces in the exhibit, some of which are made of recycled cigarette butts collected dusting community clean-ups, seek to inspire viewers in a different way to quit smoking.

    “In a way we are healing our environment by picking up cigarette butts contaminating our beaches and streets and turning something ugly into something beautiful to give people the courage needed to quit a habit that damages their health,” said Zeina Hannoush, M.D., the creator and founder of Art MD.
