Rosecrance clients, staff showcase art with a ‘heart’


Love was in air – and on the walls – this week as Rosecrance staff and clients displayed paintings, drawings and other creative work as part of the annual Heart Art Show.

The theme of this year’s show is “Listen with Your Heart.” Many art pieces featured colorful hearts and references to music such as musical notes, headphones and song lyrics.

Clients and staff members contributed art to the shows, which launched Feb. 11 at the Griffin Williamson Campus and the Harrison Campus. The Ware Center will host its first Heart Art Show from noon to 2 p.m. Feb. 26.

Visitors snacked on sweets and listened to heart and love-themed music while they perused the artwork. At RGW, employees and clients used markers to write on colorful pieces of fabric the names of people they love. Then, they weaved the fabric through a loom to represent the “ups and downs” of life.

At RHC, two large paintings were displayed side by side featuring song lyrics picked out by staff and clients.
