PIPELINE: Rashid Johnson for University of Minnesota: Masonic Institute for the Developing Brain

RxART is proud to be working again with Rashid Johnson on a new project for the University of Minnesota’s Masonic Institute for the Developing Brain (MIDB). Johnson will bring his Seascape imagery to MIDB’s MRI Suite. Approximately 150 patients participated in 11 different studies conducted in the MRI Suite since its opening July, 2022. The hospital anticipates that the number of participants will increase considerably, with over 1,000 scans completed yearly, as more studies get off the ground. 

Every RxART project is produced at no cost to the hospital and provides each commissioned artist with an honorarium. RxART is deeply grateful to the Eliza Moore fund for generously sponsoring this project. For more information on supporting RxART’s projects, please get in touch with Lindsey Cash: lindsey_cash@rxart.net or visit our Donate Page.

MIDB provides patients a convenient, welcoming, and calm environment and aims to accelerate discovery and improve brain health through dynamic research, compassionate and creative care models, policy initiatives, and community integration. The MRI Suite houses MIDB’s Neuroimaging Hub, a unit dedicated to a variety of brain research and cutting edge translational applications for MRI.
