MOCA Jacksonville continues its partnership with Art with a Heart in Healthcare, a nonprofit organization that provides personalized fine art experiences to enhance the healing process for patients and families at Wolfson Children's Hospital, Nemours Children's Clinic, and Brooks Rehabilitation.
For this exhibition, each artist started with a question, "If you could be anything, go anywhere, do anything … what would it be?" In answering this question, the patients render their self-portraits as they are and as they would be. Painting on canvas, patients explore their personalities, stories, and identities in two-dimensional form. Patients partner with artists-in-residence to expand their artistic expression while promoting self-confidence and self-awareness during their hospital experience. Sponsored by First Tennessee Bank, An Other Side Revealed shows how these young artists would alter their worlds.
