The new UK Albert B. Chandler Hospital doesn’t look or sound like a traditional hospital thanks to the UK Arts in HealthCare program. Multiple forms of art throughout our hospitals and clinics are made possible through private funds. The program features local, national and international artists.
“All great academic medical centers rely on philanthropy to achieve their dreams. The generous gifts of individuals and organizations make it possible to bring together art, science and healing in this world-class facility for the people of Kentucky and beyond.”
– Michael Karpf, MD, Executive Vice President for Health Affairs
The UK Arts in HealthCare program established a community-based advisory committee to help define the mission and vision of the program, write policies and select major commissions. The program features:
As the role of the arts in the health care setting is further substantiated, the program will grow and change to enrich the healing environment at UK HealthCare.

Arts in HealthCare is happy to announce the addition of our newest art
The North Rotating Gallery is located on the 3rd floor of the KY
Clinic. The 1st exhibit, now on display, features large and vibrant abstract
pigment paintings by Korean artist Chung Hwan Park. The exhibit was made
possible by the generous gift of 40 Park paintings to our program by Laura
Smith and Martin Nederpelt.
The exhibit features a collection of
oil on canvas color paintings done from views of downtown Lexington at his High
Street studio in the 1990's.
In 2013, The UK Arts in HealthCare Program was recognized for excellence by the Governor’s Award in the Arts and the Medi-Star Awards. Both awards recognized the patient-centered focus of the program.
