  • Make It Better: Art, Design, & the Future of Healthcare

    Jessica Barthel, the newest member of the RxArt team, spent the weekend in Providence to attend Make It Better, a symposium on art, design, and the future of healthcare, held at RISD. The well-attended two day event brought together healthcare experts, design professionals, artists, curators, and students to to discuss how the creative industries can and must play a key role in humanizing the healthcare system.   

    Many of the keynote speakers hailed from the healthcare industry or government public health organizations and had never been asked to speak at an art or design symposium - they exclaimed how eye opening it was to begin to think seriously about potential benefits of collaborations with artists or designers. The inspiring weekend made it clear that there is a growing groundswell of support for work like RxArt’s. Check out the symposium website for a forthcoming video gallery of conference highlights you can enjoy without enduring an eleven hour day in a tiny auditorium seat.

  • You can unleash your inner child too!

    Last week we happily donated over 5,000 Between the Lines  coloring books to hospitals across the country. We are always excited to hear reports from the hospitals that patients of all ages and gender, and staff too, all love scribbling away in their books! Between the Lines features original artwork by Takashi Murakami, Ed Ruscha, Lawrence Weiner, and other greats. 

    You can unleash your inner child too! Coloring books are available for purchase at rxart.net/store

  • 8,000 Gallons of Printer Ink

    Take 16,000 pounds of red, blue, and yellow ink cartridges put in a semi-truck and tip it over and this is what you might get. 

    A semi carrying 8,000 gallons of printer ink flipped over on an interstate in Peabody, Massachusetts earlier this morning, resulting in  street art, literally. Thankfully no one was injured.

    I don’t think KRINK markers could do a drip art of this proportion.
