PIX11 TV News features Preview of Healing Walls book

Today, the Laurie M. Tisch Illumination Fund and NYC Health + Hospitals celebrated the publication of Healing Walls at NYC Health + Hospitals/Harlem. Healing Walls commemorates the three-year Community Mural Project, a flagship of the NYC Health + Hospitals Arts in Medicine program.

Watch the news segment on PIX11:

From 2019 through 2021, artists selected from hundreds of applicants collaborated with staff and the surrounding communities to create 26 murals— one in all eleven of the system’s hospitals, all five rehab and long-term care facilities, nine neighborhood clinics that are a part of NYC Health + Hospitals/Gotham Health community health centers and the health system’s new headquarters at 50 Water Street in Manhattan.

All 26 murals are documented in Healing Walls. The book is published by the Laurie M. Tisch Illumination Fund as a gift to the health care system in thanks for their bravery and dedication to the health of all New Yorkers, regardless of their circumstances. Healing Walls is being offered free to NYC Health + Hospitals staff and more than 1,500 employees and community members who participated in the project. It will be available for purchase on Amazon later this year, with all proceeds going to the NYC Health + Hospitals Arts in Medicine program.
