The Art of Healing is a new fundraising event that will bring hope through art to display in the new Fetal Care Center at Children’s Hospital of Michigan, bringing hope and encouragement to expecting moms who may be experiencing challenges with their pregnancies.
Artwork will be created by young artists at Detroit-based Charles L. Spain Elementary-Middle School and the Center for Creative Studies, which will be auctioned. Winning bidders of the live or silent auction will not receive the art, rather their names will be displayed at the hospital along with the artist who created the one-of-a-kind piece.
This innovative pilot is called Arts by Prescription and is modeled after a successful program in the United Kingdom which utilizes the arts experience as an integrated part of healing.
