Art in a Place of Healing

Healing isn't just surgery or medication, it requires more that that, often things that are not as tangible or as obvious. Being in a calm, beautiful as well as functional, and modern environment was an important part of the design of TMC for Children. We've mentioned the artwork on the walls before, amazing pictures by young Tucson artists, fanciful pieces by more seasoned (adult) artists too, grace our walls. The TMC's Children's Miracle Network has been instrumental in creating the place for this art.

More recently, TMC for Children is proud to be the home to nine of the 74 Congressional Art Competition award winners presented in the Congressional District 8 Art Competition, hosted by the staff of Congresswoman Gabrielle Giffords. They are stunning images. A reminder that looking at or creating art is a valid part of the healing process.
2011 marks the 26th anniversary of the Congressional Art Competition sponsored by the Congressional Arts Caucus. The competition recognizes the creative talents of young high school age Americans
