Art is medicine for the mind and body. Art evokes calm, creative and inspirational feelings that can improve attitudes and perceptions about wellness. Art elicits a relaxed state of being that can enhance immune processes and blood flow. The presence of art in hospitals has been shown to reduce the lengths of patient stays and to help relieve stress for patients and visitors. This is why MUSC exhibits high-quality contemporary artwork throughout Ashley River Tower. This innovative health care facility showcases 873 original works by a diverse group of 54 artists who live in South Carolina. learn more...
