One of the first and most comprehensive arts in medicine 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.
