The new UK Albert B. Chandler Hospital doesn’t look or sound like a traditional hospital thanks to the UK Arts in HealthCare program. Multiple forms of art throughout our hospitals and clinics are made possible through private funds. The program features local, national and international artists.
“All great academic medical centers rely on philanthropy to achieve their dreams. The generous gifts of individuals and organizations make it possible to bring together art, science and healing in this world-class facility for the people of Kentucky and beyond.”
– Michael Karpf, MD
The UK Arts in HealthCare program established a community-based advisory committee to help define the mission and vision of the program, write policies and select major commissions. The program features:
- Local, national and international visual artists.
- Performing artists from our faculty and staff and from the world stage.
- Therapeutic arts which employ art in the clinical setting to contribute to healing.
As the role of the arts in the health care setting is further substantiated, the program will grow and change to enrich the healing environment at UK HealthCare.
