The Healing Power of Art

Thanks to community generosity, the St. Luke’s Wood River Foundation has developed an extraordinary fine art collection that enriches the hospital environment for patients, visitors, staff, and volunteers

The collection comprises over 200 pieces of fine art. It represents a diverse assortment of contemporary art across multiple media, including paintings, photographs, and sculptures. Art in the St. Luke’s collection has been both generously donated to the medical center, as well as placed on long-term loan from local art collectors. Some works of art have been gifted with the intention of raising funds through their sale. Proceeds are then used to support specific funding priorities.
