Our Arts & Healthcare Initiative began at Rapides Regional Medical Center in September, 2003. Since then, we have implemented many programs serving patients, their families and staff. Our current activities feature an art gallery in the South Tower where local art is rotated 6 -8 times a year.
We are sad to announce that we will no longer be contracted by Rapides Regional to hang art in their gallery. We know that the ever-changing art by local artists that we hung there for many years made a huge difference in the atmosphere of the hospital and we were proud to feature so much quality art on the walls there for all to see.
Silk Banners created as a community project by Arts & Healthcare, Inc. hang in the Rapides Cancer Center.
Schedule of Events
We are excited to announce that artist, Morgan Reese will be visiting the Rapides Cancer Center to paint every other Monday and she will be making visits to the Pediatric floor to do bedside arts with patients too!
