Arts & Healthcare, Inc.

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.  

Please visit the Rapides Regional Art Gallery located in the South Tower between the lobby and the Emergency Room. In October we will feature the 8th Annual Paint Pink Art Exhibit commemorating Breast Cancer Awareness Month.  Come see art by 20 different local artists.

In November, we will feature the art of River Oaks artist, Laura Gates.

Most art is for sale with partial proceeds going to Arts & Healthcare.  If you are interested in purchasing any of the art you see in the gallery, please leave a message at (318) 769-7602 and we will call you back.

This exhibit is free and open to the public.

Silk Banners created as a community project by Arts & Healthcare, Inc. hang in the Rapides Cancer Center.
