Modern Art as a Healing Tool
Saw this on CBS Sunday Morning (which is becoming one of my favorite shows) and wanted to link to it. From the LA Times: “On a Sunday morning CBS broadcast, news correspondent Bill Whitaker takes a tour through the 1,000 pieces of modern art on display at Cedars-Sinai Medical Center in Los Angeles.”
I loved how picky the hospital was about the art they accepted. It’s not a place for celebrities to “dump” the art they no longer want, explained Leonard Nemoy and his wife. Artists in their collection include Jasper Johns, AndyWarhol, Robert Rauschenberg, and Frank Stella, among others.
I also enjoyed seeing the patients connect to different pieces or just enjoying the act of walking around and looking at the variety of the work.
