Arts and Healthcare: My Canvas is My Story

June 08, 2016 to September 04, 2016

This special initiative features art created by diverse populations, ranging from patients from Samaritan Pastega Regional Cancer Center who are completing treatment to adults with traumatic brain and spinal injuries living at Holly Residential. Thanks to support from the Oregon Arts Commission, the museum has been able to offer a series of workshops during spring term for parents and children focused on expressive arts. Sessions have been led by museum educators on-site at the JSMA and off-site in Corvallis at Good Samaritan Hematology Oncology Unit and PeaceHealth Sacred Heart Medical Center at RiverBend.
