Today: Health Providers Get Creative at 8th Annual Art Event at Martinez Hospital

by ECT


Doctors, nurses and other Contra Costa Health Services’ staff will once again share their artistic sides this year for the 8th annual Health Care Workers as Creators event at Contra Costa Regional Medical Center (CCRMC) in Martinez. The program will feature work by painters and sculptors, musical performances, workshops and hands-on art making guided by expressive arts therapists. CCRMC Farmers’ Market food vendors are catering the event.

While the event and food are free, people are encouraged to donate to Art of Health and Healing (formerly Healing Through the Arts), a group of medical staff and others that promotes activities and programs designed to foster creativity, improve patient satisfaction and create a better healing environment. For one week following the event, there will be an art show featuring work by our staff and community artists in the lobby and hallways in Building 1 on the CCRMC campus. These works will then be included in a six week show called “Art Passages” in the county administration building at 651 Pine Street in Martinez under the direction of the Arts & Culture Commission of Contra Costa County.

3 p.m. to 8 p.m. Tuesday, September 17

In the Redwood Grove at Contra Costa Regional Medical Center, 2500 Alhambra Ave., Martinez

A great cause if you care to donate, the County hospital is non profit and is always doing fund raisers to improve patient care. Nice artwork too, I’ve seen it several times over the years.
