Participate in a Paintfest
The Foundation for Hospital Art's mission is to give comfort and hope to those who suffer in hospitals by providing them murals at no cost in order to soften the experience for patients, families and hospital staff.
The murals for the Paintfest are pre-drawn by Foundation for Hospital Art artists and color coded. Attendees have the opportunity to paint during the opening exhibit hall reception on Sunday, exhibit hall hours on Monday and exhibit hall hours on Tuesday until 2 p.m.
Murals are displayed and presented during the closing general session. The murals are touched-up, signed to acknowledge the sponsorship and then donated to hospitals around the country to soften the experience for patients, families and hospital staff.
Paintfest is sponsored by BBVA Compass.
