Gifts of Art makes call for exhibits

April 14, 2020  //  FOUND IN: Updates & Resources

The Gifts of Art Program is seeking submissions for solo and group art exhibits for the September 2020 to August 2021 exhibition year.  

One of the first and most comprehensive arts in health care programs in the nation, Gifts of Art brings the world of art and music to Michigan Medicine.

The team’s nine 2-D and 3-D galleries throughout the medical center are viewed by approximately 10,000 people a day and display over 30 exhibits a year.   

The Exhibition Program is intended to support the healing process by calming nerves, lifting spirits, engaging minds and thereby reducing the stress and anxiety often associated with health care settings.

With large patient, staff and visitor populations that are diverse in every way imaginable, Gifts of Art strives to be inclusive and honor this diversity by mounting exhibits that reflect today’s world. For more information about this mission and other Gifts of Art programming, please visit
