Every two months, the Penny George Institute invites a new artist to display art that communicates visions or experiences of health, healing and spirit. The institute displays art from a broad range of cultural backgrounds; the concepts of “health, healing and spirit” have a multiplicity of meanings and The Art of Healing is meant to reflect that diversity.
