“Just as there is evidence-based medicine, there is evidence-based art, which serves a deeper purpose,” said Christina Mullen, AIM director. “There’s a science behind it.”
Research demonstrates that properly constructed images can calm and soothe the viewer and act as a care tool. Landscapes that feature horizons, the sky, open space, trees and other forms of scenic nature have the best results.
“The previous calls to employee artists have been incredibly successful.” Mullen said. “Patients and families are so impressed and grateful that our staff share this side of themselves, and I’m looking forward to seeing what this next round holds.”
