The Healing Arts Program
A Collaboration of Hudson Hospital and The Phipps Center for the Arts
January 1st - December 31st, 2013
In 2001, The Phipps Center for the Arts and Hudson Hospital embarked on an innovative collaboration to exhibit, acquire, and commission original work by regional artists. While the health care field has begun to embrace the understanding that a well-designed environment that integrates the visual arts can have a positive impact both on a patient’s healing process and on staff morale, the Healing Arts Program at Hudson Hospital is unique. It is the only one of its kind that involves a collaboration between two community-based organizations.
At any given time, work by several regional artists is on display in waiting areas, conference rooms, patient and staff corridors, procedure rooms, and patient rooms. Exhibits are rotated every three to four months, offering variety and interest for staff, as well as opportunities for many regional artists to participate.
Reception: Friday August 9, 6:-00 - 8:00 p.m.
On view at Hudson Hospital and Clinics during the spring and summer are works by the following artists:
Through August 4, Melanie Bethke, Julie Dierhauer, Jodi Reeb-Myers, Patty Carmody Smith, Marcia Soderman
Through September 15, Brenda Litman, shawn Payne, Charlotte Schuld
Through October 13, Laura Brown, Ron Duffy, Rod Massey, Staff/Volunteer Show
Through November 17, Patricia Hamm, Katy Kelly Noun, Sara Kusa, Robyn Priestley, Mel Tudisco
