Healing HeART is a rotating art exhibit at Western Reserve Hospital featuring artwork curated from local artists who are currently battling or survived cancer. The goal of this project is to share art among the cancer-affected community as a resource, inspiration and celebration of survivorship.
The art is exhibited in the infusion rooms and New Choice Pharmacy to enhance the treatment environment for current patients and expose them to the healing nature of art. The artist’s story is documented as part of the exhibit to inspire those currently receiving treatment at Western Reserve Hospital.
If you are a survivor or currently battling an illness and are interested in participating in the curated Healing HeART showcase, we will be accepting artists for future installations. For more information, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org.

A syringe was used to inject acrylic paint onto these canvases in a very deliberate manner. The paint was applied at different viscosities to establish various areas of desired depth and detail. Eight layers of paint were applied to each canvas to achieve the desired effect.
