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.
Q: What does 10 bucks get you in New York City?
A: A venti Starbucks caramel macchiato… OR a ticket to an unforgettable evening of funk, soul and rock with five bands, raffle drawings and a donation to RxArt!

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.
Calling all budding artists and Crayola savants: RxArt now has a Flickr group where you can submit your colored pages from our Between the Lines coloring books! Sharing art with others makes us happy, so won’t you do the same?
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 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.
