"A Capella" | Mesa Falls, Targhee National Forest, Idaho
Today most hospitals and other health care facilities understand the healing potential of art in the environment. Research has shown that the right kind of art, especially photographs of nature scenes, has a positive impact on patients, visitors and staff. Patients feel better and recover faster, visitors feel more welcome and staff experiences a higher level of satisfaction leading to better patient care and less turnover. Amazing!
It has been a pleasure and an honor to have a collection of landscape photographs featured in the Cancer Center at the University of Michigan Health System for the past few months through their Gifts of Art program. The exhibit will be wrapping up soon, on April 7, 2014. The particular collection of images I chose for the exhibit was carefully selected based on research into the healing potential of artwork and it is my hope that the patients, visitors and staff at the Cancer Center were uplifted in some small way.
Working with hospitals, doctor's offices, and other health care facilities continues to be a very rewarding aspect of my work. Please contact me for more information. View my landscape collections in the online galleries HERE.
