The View from Here

Creative Writing and Art by Patients at Boston Children’s Hospital

February 26 – March 28, 2013

Reception: Thursday March 7, 5-7:30 pm

Gallery Hours: Tuesday-Friday 1-5pm, Saturday 2-5pm or by appointment


The Towne Art Gallery is pleased to present works made by patients in the Creative Arts Program at Boston Children’s Hospital.  This program provides engaging, innovative, and uplifting experiences that support an integrated approach to care for the many diverse families and communities the hospital serves.  Since 1996, the arts have been used at Children’s to enhance physical and emotional healing, transform the hospital environment, and provide opportunities for expression.


Often the works are crafted amid the beeping of machines, the administering of medications and all of the ongoing hospital routines.  Artwork grows through the cracks in these routines, allowing the individuality of the patients to blossom.
