Becoming an art destination
We continue to develop relationships with university entities, community organizations and local artists so the UK Arts in HealthCare program contributes to the cultural landscape of the community and the region. Our hope is that people will come to the hospital to see the art, listen to music and enjoy the landscape when they are well, so in a time of need the place will be familiar and comfortable.
The uniquely Kentucky feel of the Arts in HealthCare collection has been extended to student housing as well. As new residence halls are constructed on campus over the next three years, the program is curating the art that hangs in public spaces and active learning centers. These additional works will become part of a collection that reaches across the campus community.
