Art for Healing

Posted by Harriet Hodgson @harriethodgson1, Oct 26, 2018

Kudos to the Montreal Museum of Fine Art for allowing physicians to write prescriptions for free admission to the museum. And kudos to Mayo Clinic for its art program. From the beginning, Mayo Clinic believed that art can uplift patients and foster healing. Whether it’s Rochester, Jacksonville or Scottsdale, Mayo Clinic displays a wide range of artwork for patients. The Rochester site published a brochure for a self-guided tour of artwork. I live in Rochester and every time I’m at Mayo, I take the time to look at the artwork.

I recently found this saying, or, rather, it found me! Thought it fit perfectly with our discussion on art and healing

@becsbuddy Great quote! Looking back on completed projects, it never ceases to amaze me, the process and what I accomplished. Like the struggle with health, depression, and life, doing a little bit at a time, when you step back and look at it overall, you see the whole thing. It hopefully gives you a good feeling. I know it does me. Will you see something you might have changed? Absolutely, without a doubt, and that's okay. At the time you did what felt right.
