Over the last 40 years, Gene Beyt has been a visual artist. His initial interest in photography and pen and ink drawing began as a child and developed while in medical school. His photographs have been paired with poetry in the tradition of physician novelist Walker Percy in the book The Quotidian, and his work has appeared in national publications and in gallery collections. His current project is Existential Lore.
Gene Beyt is a contributing artist at the non-profit Care Collaboratory, faculty at Tulane University, and is the co-editor of the book Wisdom Leadership.
