Art for Healing

San Francisco, California

About this nonprofit organization
Sooner or later, most of us find ourselves in a medical setting, whether as patients, caregivers or visitors. Art transforms these typically sterile spaces into comfortable, more humane places that nourish our sense of wellbeing, improve recuperation, and boost staff morale.

Art for Healing incorporates fine arts into the delivery of healthcare, to revitalize clinical settings, rejuvenate patients and personnel, and strengthen the holistic recovery process.

Art for Healing collects works of art through donation and places them in a wide range of hospitals, hospices, community clinics, children's centers, retirement homes, and other agencies serving highly diverse, cross-cultural populations throughout the Greater San Francisco Bay Area.
