Feist-Weiller Cancer Center

Volunteers for the Arts in Medicine program at Feist-Weiller Cancer Center gain valuable experience in a hospital setting. Volunteers are commissioned to take sketches and supplies to patients so they can paint while undergoing treatment. Patients paint individual squares that are combined to form a finished piece of art that is framed and hung on the walls at Feist-Weiller Cancer Center and the hospital. Both patients and volunteers learn about the original artist and the history of their masterpiece.

Anyone interested in assisting or supporting the Arts in Medicine program please call the Development Office 318.813.1423.
