Art with a Heart in Healthcare

August 10, 2019 - December 8, 2019

MOCA Jacksonville continues its partnership with Art with a Heart in Healthcare (AWAHIH), a nonprofit organization that provides personalized fine art experiences to enhance the healing process for patients and families at Wolfson Children's Hospital, Nemours Children's Clinic, St. Vincent and Mayo Clinic. For this exhibition, each artist started with a question, "If you could create your own animal, what would it look like?" In answering this question, each patient rendered his or her own unique animal. Patients explored their personalities, stories, and identities in an animal form on collaged canvas. Each patient partnered with an artist-in-residence of AWAHIH to bring out their natural talents and expand their artistic expression while at the same time promoting self-confidence and self-awareness during their hospital experience.
