-Debut Exhibition Showcases Power of Healing Through Art and Music-
(Englewood, NJ, January 10, 2014) – Englewood Hospital and Medical Center (EHMC) is proud to announce the launch of The Art of Healing Program, in partnership with The Art School at Old Church (TASOC) in Demarest, NJ. The new program is designed to showcase the power of healing through art and music and will include a tour of the first 19-piece exhibition and an artist reception at The Ferolie Gallery at EHMC on February 6, 2014 from 5:30pm-7:30pm.
Attendees will enjoy a tour through the Medical Center, where the works of local artists will be on display, followed by a reception and an opportunity to meet the artists. Noted jazz musicians will provide entertainment, made possible through EHMC’s Dizzy Gillespie Memorial Fund and the New York City-based Jazz Foundation of America.
“Our mission is to form meaningful partnerships with our community in an effort to provide high-quality, compassionate, humanistic care and enhance the hospital experience,” said Warren Geller, President and CEO of EHMC. “Our collaboration with TASOC will contribute to the comfort and wellbeing of all patients and visitors, who will be exposed to various art works in designated areas of The Medical Center throughout the year. It is also important to recognize the efforts of one of our community leaders and EHMC ambassadors, Linda Senter, who worked closely with TASOC to make this vision a reality. We are extremely grateful to those who generously volunteer their time and expertise to ensure our Medical Center remains at the forefront of excellent patient care.”
EHMC and TASOC are now seeking artists in Bergen County and surrounding counties who are interested in having their works displayed at The Medical Center for its second exhibition set to debut on June 12, 2014.
