• Gouverneur Hospital

    RxArt is proud to share with you our first foray into public hospitals with our most recent installation at Gouverneur Hospital in Manhattan’s Lower East Side!

    The diverse array of works installed in both the OB/GYN and Pediatric Units reflect the array of languages and cultures in the surrounding community, and what were once empty corridors now bear the inspiring work of Jason Middlebrook, Mark Dion, Garrett Phelan, Lane Twitchell and Yvonne Jacquette.

    For a closer look at the entire project, check out our website updates here.

    RxArt is pleased to announce our most recent acquisition—Myoung Ho Lee’s Tree #14—to be placed in a patient room at Rockefeller University Hospital. Thanks to the generosity of the Eliza Moore Fund and Yossi Milo Gallery, we were able to purchase this spectacular print that we’ve had our eyes on for months. Needless to say, the hospital staff is beyond excited and we think the patients are going to be just as thrilled!image

    Last night’s concert for RxArt was a huge success to say the least! The Bitter End was teeming with fans, the high energy was contagious, and we were floored by the outpouring of buzz and support for the musicians and RxArt. A massive thanks to Caitlin Krisko & The Broadcast for your endless amounts of creativity and incredible generosity.

  • Jealous Curator

    The Jealous Curator blog recently praised both Mary Temple and RxArt:

    The top three images are from a project called Extended Afternoon, Aldrich Museum, and the fourth piece is actually how I found her. It’s her contribution to an amazing non-profit organization called RxArt based in New York.

  • RxArt in Kempt

    UrbanDaddy’s blog, Kempt, not only gave RxArt a coloring book shout out, but they gave us a brilliant idea to boot! We’re honored, humbled and inspired:

    All that’s missing is a place to see the works after they’ve gotten a little crayon on them, but it’s nothing a tumblr couldn’t solve.

  • Splice Mail Art

    Splice Mail Art is yet another example of how art can be a much-needed diversion from trying times. Your good deed for the day: review the submission guidelines on this blog and take ten minutes to fabricate an original masterpiece to send to Ruben. Amelie would be proud!

    Ruben Cooke began cancer treatment for relapsed Hodgkins Lymphoma at the John Radcliffe Hospital, Oxford in the month of January, 2010. This project has been designed to provide some distraction from the reality of his situation. We plan to exhibit some or all of the work received, upon completion of Ruben’s treatment. Simply by visiting the blog, you are cordially invited to participate in any way you are able and to bring your ingenuity with you.
