RxART, In Memory of Mollie Maxwell Myers

We are heartbroken to learn of the passing of a dear friend, supporter, and former Advisory Board member of RxART, Mollie Maxwell Myers. Mollie was full of joy and boundless love for her family and those in her life. She met life’s hardest challenges head-on, always seeking solutions, and looking on the bright side. In 2006, she approached Diane Brown about her and her husband Robert’s interest in supporting a new project. They funded an incredible site-specific wall mural by Jason Middlebrook in the Bone Marrow Transplant Unit at Mount Sinai Hospital in NYC. The mural, titled “Traveling Seeds,” depicted seed-bearing plants, which regenerate life as their seeds are carried by the wind and deposited elsewhere, thereby continuing the cycle of life. An edition of prints of Middlebrook’s “Traveling Seeds” imagery was produced to expand the project at Mount Sinai.  Subsequently, prints from the editions were also installed at Christus St. Elizabeth Hospital in Beaumont, TX. Mollie was born in Houston, TX and was proud to introduce RxART to Children’s Memorial Hermann Hospital in Houston, where thanks again to the generosity of Mollie and Bob, RxART installed a vibrant and welcoming site-specific mural by Trenton Doyle Hancock.  Our sympathy and love are with Mollie’s family and friends; she will be tremendously missed.
