Art and Music

UW Health facilities feature thousands of pieces of original artwork, most by local and regional artists.The arts are a sometimes underappreciated component of the patient experience. A lovely song or a beautiful picture can go a long way toward helping patients maintain a positive mind-set, so UW Health places an emphasis on making artistic interludes available to our patients.

 

Art Galleries and Exhibitions

 

A number of UW Health patient care locations feature rotating art exhibits that contribute to the healing environment we want to provide for our patients and their friends and families.
