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.
