We have a fund raising campaign for our newest patient art making kit – a charismatic Bot Buddy robot on a domino. Each dollar pays for one kit.

We also have a 1:1 match!

"When I’m offering our art kits and listing what’s available to patients and guests, they are completely amazed at how much we offer and even more amazed that it’s free.”

    Gifts of Art    
One of the first and most comprehensive arts in health programs nationwide, Gifts of Art brings the world of art & music to Michigan Medicine. During times of stress and illness, the arts have the power to nurture and engage. Gifts of Art programs utilize the arts to assist and enhance the healing process, reduce stress, support human dignity and renew the spirit.

For information about our exhibits, please visit Exhibits. For information about our concerts, visit Performances. Information on all of our other programs, including Bedside Music & Art, the FRIENDS Meditation Garden and the Life Sciences Orchestra, visit Programs.

Gifts of Art is sponsored, in part, by the FRIENDS of Michigan Medicine, grants, donations and art sales. To learn how you can make a gift, please visit Donations.
