United Cerebral Palsy's children and adult programs are so appreciative of the Virtual Museum ArtBook. Children of all ages and abilities are able to experience art like never before. The ArtBook is visually, emotionally and intellectually stimulating for children and adults of all ages. Thank you Mark Lombard and Pompano Beach High School for this amazing gift. Pat Murphy, UCP Executive Director

I'm so grateful for this beautiful opportunity to be a part of. Mark Lombard is such a warm and compassionate man who has made it his mission to bring Art as a tool to open new dreams and inspire people, whom are not able to see art in museums. I'm so happy to be a new member of Dallas and this wonderful non-profit.

For Love & Art is a powerful experience for as a board member / volunteer and as a provider of a very positive experience to a very appreciative audience.

The art experience is a powerful engagement tool the lends itself to a crucial "conversation" between caregiver and the recipient.

I am proud to be associated with and helping to grow an organization that provides a much needed interactive experience that would otherwise be missed by many.

I have been working with this organization for a couple of years. It is a group that continues to change lives through the process of engaging conversation and human contact with art as the catalyst.

Each of us has or will be impacted in various life stages and either will know or be the beneficiary of this organization's endeavors.

The interest grows as our donor list grows - this is a very special group to be associated with.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

Simply continue expanding the reach to attract more benefactors to provide the service to more recipients.

Will you volunteer or donate to this organization beyond what is required of board members?

Definitely

I would really like to Thank Mr.Mark Lombard and his Very Special Guest that he brings to the facility with him. My Residents get really excited to hear that he's coming. I've seen Residents in living room that usually will not participate in any activity, Mr. Mark really brings the Museum alive for them and they Love it. They leave talking about when is he coming back. Thank you Mark. Dottie Caldwell/Activity Director

For Love and Art is the ideal intersection of digital technology and ageless acts of kindness through the sharing of art.

The "For Love and Art" digital museum guide has been a much appreciated, easy to use tool for our Grace Hospice patient companions. Our patients can now escape into the vibrant gardens by Claude Monet and admire Edgar Degas ballerinas without ever leaving their bedside. This guide draws patient and caregivers attention away from their reality and instead allows them to focus on exploring various museums instead.

Christian Care Senior Living Community in Mesquite, Texas, is grateful for the Love and Passion that Mark Lombard and his volunteers have shared with our Assisted Living Residents. The attention that our residents give to the Art that is shared is breath taking and memorable. To listen to our residents ask questions about the art and share their life experiences with the group is very special. The Love of Art Discussion group has become a monthly event in our Assisted Living. Praying for this Community partnership to become a lifetime event for our Senior Residents. Sharing and Caring for the Love of Art is so very important to us all, no matter what the age.
Thank You, Cynthia Evans, Activities and Special Events for Bentley Assisted Living, Christian Care Senior Living Community, Mesquite, Texas

The For Love and Art book is extremely easy to use and captures the attention of the participant's we serve at Seasons Adult Day Health Services of Midland, MI. They enjoy going through each piece and discussing if they would "hang it on their wall" or not. Many of the pieces provoke strong feelings of like or dislike which is great! It gets them talking and socializing with their peers, demonstrating their personal taste and opinions. I would highly recommend this art book to any facility providing care for seniors with dementia. It is a great tool to use for 1:1 activities and provides a medium for new staff or volunteers to interact with someone with dementia. Thank you Mark!

The most important aspect of any museum is engaging the community. This program allows seniors and those with disabilities to also enjoy the finer and better things in life. I think this is a wonderful and much needed program that shows interest in maintaining the arts and compassion to the community.

For Love and Art has gifted many of the member hospices of the Texas Non Profit Hospice Alliance with these incredible art books. The passion, detail and professionalism and incredible generosity that FL&A brings to this project has allowed our non-profit hospices all across Texas to bring the transformational experience of art to the bedsides of those who can no longer visit a museum. This is an organization that has touched the lives and spirits of those at the end of life and made a true difference. Thank you For Love and Art!
