Judy Woodruff:

It’s one of the largest public art collections in the country, and it’s not where you might expect to see it. Artwork in New York hospitals aims to heal patients and healers.

Jeffrey Brown continues his occasional look at the intersection of art and health for our ongoing arts and culture series, Canvas.

Join Jeffrey Brown as he visits Woodhull Hospital with artist Imani Shanklin Roberts and nurse Judith Cutchin, Harlem Hospital with Eric Wei and Barbara Haskell, and goes behind the scenes with Larissa Trinder in the art storage room.
