The Mission of RxART is to help children heal through the extraordinary power of visual art. RxART commissions established contemporary artists to transform children’s hospital settings into engaging and uplifting healing environments at no cost to the hospitals. 

 Each commissioned artist is provided with an honorarium, the opportunity to create a public installation with purpose, and the chance to transform the lives of children as they heal.

RxART has completed 61 projects with 93 artists in 39 hospitals throughout 24 cities in the U.S. since it was founded in 2000. RxART also operates as a registered charity in Canada. As of 2023, RxART Projects have reached more than 3.4 million patients throughout the United States.

RxART is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization | EIN 36-4375632. RxART does not accept unsolicited submissions of artwork.
