For Love and Art
November 28, 2011

The For Love & Art Project is a true blessing; the art books give our volunteers the opportunity to connect with their patients and experience art in a completely new way. For the patient who can phyically no longer walk the gallery of a museum; we can now bring the beuatiful art to them. For the patient who never went to a musuem; they can now see what they have missed.

The art book allows all patients to learn, grow, enjoy and even love art in a more intimate way. Being able to share so many works of art, there is no doubt that each patient can find at least on work that speaks to their soul. When that one piece is found the patient and volunteer have the freedom to talk about it and share what it means to them. They create a new memory, a new bond, and prove that no matter what your age or circumstance; art can enrich your life.

The Great!

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

Using the art book with the volunteers and patients at Lion Hospice.

Ways to make it better...

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

Increase awarness and funding so that more art books are available to be shared with others.
