The Center supports world class specialized health care and wellness education of the highest quality for performing and visual artists; the integration of the fine arts into the hospital environment through over 100 performances a year as part of the Margaret Alkek Williams Crain Garden Performances Series, a CPAM Hospital TV channel, Visual Art exhibits, and Music in Practice patient tours; and collaborative research and clinical Music Therapy divisions that seek to harness the broadest potential of the arts in therapy, rehabilitation and human performance.

What is a healthy community? We at Kaiser Permanente believe that it’s more than the absence of illness. It’s an environment that supports the physical, emotional and spiritual well-being of those who live, work, play and pray there. It’s a safe route for kids to walk or bicycle to school, a neighborhood grocery store stocked with fresh produce, parks and playgrounds that welcome families and workplaces that promote wellness and physical activity. We support innovative efforts to increase nutritious foods, physical activity, economic vitality, safety and wellness in local schools, workplaces and neighborhoods.

Most recently, Kaiser Permanente supported NOAH’s 2018 Leadership Summit.

University of Kentucky Arts in HealthCare

Our mission is to create an environment of care and to focus on the spiritual and emotional well-being of our patients, family, caregivers and staff.  The program recognizes the arts and the artists as powerful and positive forces in the healing process.

Our permanent visual art collection currently includes over 1700 original works of art. Our facilities also house six rotating galleries.

With over 100 live performances per year, our performing arts programming brings, music, dance, ballet, theatre and more to the public spaces of our hospitals and clinics. 

Beyond visual and performing arts programming, our program seeks to expand awareness of the field and applications of the arts in health and well-being.  We actively collaborate across disciplines on campus and with individuals and organizations from the city of Lexington, the state of Kentucky and beyond.

As we look to the future, we seek to continue to be a leader in the field of arts in health, expanding awareness of the healing power of the arts and to swell the ranks of those that would join us in this endeavor.  We must have creative solutions and solutions born of creativity as we seek to tackle the challenges presented to us by our health care systems, our economies and the communities that we serve.
