Artful Healing

September 15, 2012–February 18, 2013

This exhibition features a range of works from participants in the MFA's Artful Healing program, which brings the MFA collection and Museum educators to three partner institutions—Massachusetts General Hospital, Children’s Hospital Boston, and Dana Farber Cancer Institute—to improve environments through art-making, promote healing, and inspire hope in patients, families, and staff. “Artful Healing” highlights approximately 40 works, including drawings, photographs, and other 2D media produced by families and individual participants in response to images from the MFA collection.
