We experience emotional connections through art and research indicates that human interaction with art can influence a sense of well-being and healing. Join Joycelyn Todisco, Director of the Museum Art Source and Museum Shop, for a talk on Evidence Based Design research proving art is a critical component of the healthcare environment.
