RxART: Stimulating Healing Through Art

RxART helps children heal through the extraordinary power of visual art. RxART commissions established contemporary artists to transform children’s hospital settings into engaging and uplifting healing environments at no cost to the hospitals. Each commissioned artist is provided with an honorarium, the opportunity to create a public installation with purpose, and the chance to transform the lives of children as they heal.

The Krawczyk Family Foundation’s gift will enable RxArt Canada to distribute Between the Lines: An RxArt Canada Colouring Book by Contemporary Artists to children in hospitals and health care centers throughout Canada. The colouring book features original drawings by approximately 50 established and emerging contemporary Canadian artists. The book will also be available for sale, with proceeds supporting the organization.
