Inside the Outline: Art with a Heart in Healthcare
August 6, 2016 - December 4, 2016
MOCA JACKSONVILLE CONTINUES its partnership with Art with a Heart in Healthcare, sponsored by First Tennessee Foundation. Art with a Heart is a nonprofit that provides personalized fine art experiences to enhance the healing process for patients and families at Wolfson Children's Hospital and many more healthcare facilities in Jacksonville. For this exhibition, each artist started with a question-what makes you happy? To answer this question, patients render their likenesses in the form of silhouettes. Painted on canvases, patients delve into their inner psyches to express their personalities, stories, and identities in two-dimensional form. Patients partner with an artist-in-residence who brings out their natural talents and expands their art-making skills while promoting self-confidence and self-awareness during their hospital experience. Inside the Outline presents a fresh approach on a century-old technique.
