Through the month of October, Thea Foundation will exhibit works by patients at Arkansas Children’s Hospital in our newly renovated gallery space located at 401 Main Street in North Little Rock, Arkansas. A reception will held from 5-8 p.m. Friday, October 19, during Argenta Art Walk. During the reception, Arkansas Children’s Hospital’s artists-in-residence will be present to share about the works and their program at the hospital.
Arkansas Children's has two artists-in-residence. Hamid Ebrahimifar and Elizabeth Weber are funded by an In-School-Residency (ISR) Grant from the Arkansas Arts Council and Child Life and Education donors. The ISR artists facilitate art projects that support the core curriculum, both in the classroom setting and at the bedside. Elizabeth and Hamid educate patients and families about the process of art, while at the same time teaching them that, despite an injury, illness, or disability, they can be successful at art. theafoundation.org or call (501) 379-9512.
