WHAT WE DO

RxART is a pioneering nonprofit organization that works at the intersection of visual art and healthcare. We pair leading contemporary artists with pediatric hospitals on projects designed to humanize healthcare environments and improve the patient experience.

PROMOTING WELL-BEING THROUGH ART

RxART’s mission to enhance healthcare environments through the integration of visual art is supported by research showing that creative spaces improve patient outcomes by contributing to lower levels of stress, encouraging more efficient and consistent care, and inspiring positive perceptions of the medical setting. We promote well-being through art and believe more patients across the nation should experience its benefits in the healthcare setting.

BEFORE & AFTER

RxART projects dramatically improve healthcare spaces and range from waiting room commissions to scanner suite transformations.

 

At Children’s Hospital Los Angeles, a drab and imposing 207-foot corridor in the Operating Department was revitalized with engaging, vibrant, and playful imagery by artist Nicolas Party.

RxART'S NATIONAL FOOTPRINT

Since our founding in 2000, RxART has championed the benefits of creative environments on patient outcomes and experience. We pursue this mission through collaborations with celebrated artists on site-specific, museum-quality art installations designed for children’s hospitals across the nation and fabricated in medically approved materials. These uplifting projects are at the forefront of an accelerating movement to better integrate art into wellness and improve healthcare settings for pediatric patients, families, and providers across the United States.

"We recently had a visit from the Department of Health Joint Commission and we were awarded A+ grading for our clinic. They were very impressed with this transformation...we are very proud...and of course are so grateful to you, RxART, and Nina for helping us...the most important part of this is that the children feel the love and that they matter. Thank you for helping us provide the best healthcare and love to our patients."
