About the Art and Health Series

This series presents the stories of artists who creatively respond to mental and physical health issues through their artwork. By creating dialogue between experts in the discipline of art and those in the field of medicine and health, these programs offer the opportunity to better understand the mind, the body and the resilience of people facing incredible challenges.
