Reception tonight kicks off Hospice ‘healing art’ exhibit

BRANFORD — There will be a reception to kick off an exhibit called “Visions Toward Wholeness” from 4 to 6 tonight, Friday, July 31, at the Connecticut Hospice’s “Waterside Gallery” at the 100 Double Beach Road facility.
It is the first exhibition of “healing art” organized by the Visions Toward Wellness Educational Foundation, organizers said. The collection is designed to “visually document the power of art to assist in healing our spirit.” The lives of patients and families, while at the Connecticut Hospice, can be very much enhanced by participation in the Hospice Arts Program, which was the first hospice arts program in the country, organizers said. The program is staffed by a variety of artists, musicians, therapists, teachers and volunteers who offer daily opportunities for expression, creativity, and the relief of stress, boredom, pain or other symptoms, without cost to patients and families. The current exhibit is curated by Dr. Jon Moscartolo who, as an arts volunteer for the Connecticut Hospice Arts Program, runs an art expression program for visiting children and their parents.
Connecticut Hospice, the nation’s first hospice, is celebrating its 35th year.
