Click here for a free Art Advisory ConsultationFor over 16 years, Smith Center for Healing and the Arts has been utilizing the arts to facilitate healing for people with cancer and other illnesses through our hospital-based Artist-in-Residence program, therapeutic arts workshops, and offering opportunities for creative expression as part of an integrative health model at Cancer Retreats. In addition, Smith Center runs the Joan Hisaoka Healing Arts Gallery, a community arts space that for the past 4 years has worked with over 400 artists, produced more than 30 exhibitions, and developed a citywide arts festival marking the 10th anniversary of 9/11. Through our years of experience we have seen first hand how the arts provide an necessary outlet for self-expression, an escape from physical and mental challenges, and relief from anxiety and stress.

Smith Center Art Advisory PlacementWith this experience and the first-hand knowledge of the power of the arts on wellness Smith Center launches its Art Advisory. By bringing socially conscious and inspirational fine art to private collectors, corporations, and healthcare facilities the Art Advisory assists clients in transforming their live and work environments into healing spaces.

We believe that art possesses the ability to transform a space by eliciting positive responses and promoting physical, mental, emotional, and spiritual health.  For more information about this process and the healing qualities of art, read this article by gallery director, Brooke Seidelmann.

Practice

By integrating one-of-a-kind, inspirational fine artwork into private collectors’ homes, office spaces, and healthcare facilities throughout the DC area, and potentially beyond, the Art Advisory helps Smith Center extend its reach and impact of the arts on healing.  Representing 20 artists selected from a national call and working in a diversity of mediums, the Art Advisory offers clients a dynamic mix of works to choose from and build their unique collections.  Clients have a wide range of works to choose from — ranging from handmade paper installations to large-scale digital prints to custom, mosaic murals. By working alongside each client, the result is a specially curated art collection that tells each organization’s story of community, enhancing employee morale, and creating an uplifting environment for visitors and employees.
