The Gifts of Art Program’s rotating gallery is intended to support the healing process by calming nerves, lifting spirits, and engaging minds; thereby, reducing stress and anxiety often associated with healthcare settings. During times of stress and illness, the arts have the power to nurture and engage. Gifts of Art Programs utilize the arts to assist and enhance the healing process, reduce stress, support human dignity, and renew the spirit. With large patient, staff, and visitor populations that are diverse in every way imaginable, Michigan Medicine strives to be inclusive and honor this diversity by mounting exhibits that reflect today’s world. This non-traditional venue provides a unique opportunity for exhibiting artists.
