The Art for Healing Foundation livens up walls – and spirits – at hospitals and health care institutions in Montreal and across Canada
At Portage’s family centre in Little Burgundy, home to 25 mothers and 25 children, the new artwork offers a splash of colour that brightens lives.
The 80 works were donated by seven established artists, a collector, a bank, 10 students of Concordia University’s photography department and seven Gazette staff photographers and freelancers.
The young mothers love the makeover.
“Art puts more life in the place,” said Stephanie (she asked her family name not be used), who spent the winter months at Portage and sat on its residents’ committee.
