When I was selected to exhibit my art at VCU Healthcare Center in Richmond, VA. I did not expect the encounters and expressions that I received from everyone I met. I have many comments from visitors and patients of the Health Center about how my paintings enhanced their feelings. Through my exhibit I learned about the Art in Healthcare program and look forward to any time that I can exhibit in any of it's member health Centers. It is a wonderful feeling to hear about how much my paintings become a part of so many lives. I am preparing more positive expressions for future exhibits wherever they may be. Rufus Norman, artist.

Molti dei miei colleghi, come me, sono da tutte le parti della comunità. Siamo svantaggiati, il basso reddito, in stato di gravidanza, in libertà vigilata, e affamati. Siamo sempre alla ricerca di speranza. Stiamo cercando per quel breve scorcio di sole all'orizzonte. Via Tech è che la luce. Si prega di sostenere Via Tech e contribuire a portare più luce su quel orizzonte.

I have been volunteering in the field of arts in medicine for the past few years and the Society has been a huge help in providing information and resources. The wealth of knowledge and breadth of experience that members of the SAH contribute to the field of Arts in Healthcare is incredible, and their dedication to promoting the field is unrivaled. The folks there have helped tremendously in the area of providing knowledge and contacts to assist our group in volunteer efforts and fundraising projects. Really great nonprofit doing awesome work to promote the arts as a holistic part of overall health and wellness!
