Joy of Art!

Joy of Art! at Hospital for Special Care

The Joy of Art! Program

Art is an important factor in healing. By providing an opportunity for expression and communication of one’s emotions as well as improving state of mind with a calming and creative environment, art enhances quality of life. Through the Joy of Art’s Creative Expressions art therapy group we afford patients the opportunity to expand their creativity. The Joy of Art! program displays a diverse selection of art for patients, visitors and staff enjoyment. The program strengthens our bond with the community by fostering relationships with talented artists.

Give the Gift of Art

There are many ways you can help ensure patients continue to receive the benefits of art. If you are an artist you may submit your work for display during one of our art and/or photography shows, or you may donate works of art to our inventory. If you are an art lover, we invite you to attend the receptions and purchase artwork. You may also help by donating funds to the Joy of Art! program.
