Tour Tucson Medical Center’s Healing Art Collection

Bonuccelli_Dusk Carcassonne FranceTucson Medical Center has long believed in the power of surroundings in helping patients feel better.

It’s why we have 35 patios. It’s why our grounds crew cultivates a desert landscape. And it’s why we have a Healing Art Program to inspire, provoke thought, and cheer patients and visitors.

Since the program’s inception in 2014, TMC now has more than 700 gallery-quality art pieces throughout its hallways – from paintings to graphics, photography and sculpture. Each piece has been vetted to ensure quality and consistency with TMC’s healing mission.

TMC’s curator, Lauren Rabb, leads a regular tour of the Healing Art collection on campus.

“The walls of our hospital have been transformed, with more art and photography installed each month to enrich the lives of our patients, visitors and staff,” Rabb said. “But as a community hospital, we also believe it is important to share these gifts with the community – and especially since art draws its power from its stories, its imagination and its engagement.”

The tour covers one mile of hallway – with frequent stops to discuss specific works of art – and is recommended for those over the age of 12.

The next public tour is taking place Monday, August 28 at 10 a.m., with another following on Monday, Sept. 25 at 10 a.m.

Space is limited so please RSVP for instructions on where to meet at 520-444-0363 or lrauthor@cox.net.

For those who are interested in the art, but not the tour, the works may be found on our catalog at https://www.artworkarchive.com/artwork/tmc-healing-art-program
