We are committed to providing an environment that promotes healing. That kind of environment is shaped by a rich dose of art exhibits and performances. 

Project Art hopes to add to your experience at University of Iowa Hospitals & Clinics and UI Stead Family Children's Hospital. Art can help revitalize and enrich the lives of our patients and visitors and can reduce the stress and anxiety often associated with health care settings.

Our mission is to create aesthetic, contemplative, entertaining, and visual thinking experiences that offer meaningful distractions to encourage conversations and exploration while visiting the hospital.
