In October 2009, RxArt completed its first installation in a New York City public hospital. Original drawings and prints by artists such as Ben Jones, Laura Owens, Paul Henry Ramirez, Chris Martin, and Garrett Phelan were installed in Gouverneur Hospital’s Pediatric Unit.
Both RxArt and the New York City Health and Hospitals Corporation, the public benefit corporation that operates New York City’s public hospitals, were thrilled to work together. They continue to look forward to future projects where healing power of art can further contribute to patients in all of New York City’s public hospitals.
This project is made possible in part through the generous donations raised through GlobalGiving.
