Art and Healing: Exploring the Mayo Clinic Art Collection

The primary mission of Mayo Clinic is excellence in patient care – yet its founders recognized that caring for the whole patient extends beyond treating the physical ailments.  Since its inception, Mayo has used art, architecture and beauty in surroundings to address the “spiritual” aspects of medical care and to create a healing environment.  In this presentation you will see images of art from Mayo’s collection representing a wide range of periods and places, and covering centuries of artistic expressions and styles – each work as diverse as the patients they serve.  Whether you’re a patient, a visitor, or are just curious about “why art?” in a medical environment, come and learn more about this amazing collection dedicated to hope and healing.
