The Paint Box Project is now proud to partner with Arts In Healthcare for art parties and projects. The Arts in Healthcare Initiative was established by the University at Buffalo Center for the Arts in collaboration with Roswell Park Cancer Institute in September of 2008. The Initiative brings arts programming to the patients, visitors and staff at Roswell, transforming the hospital environment and encouraging physical and emotional well being. The act of engaging in creative activities allows for self expression, stress reduction, enhanced communication and provides overall distraction. Artists work daily with the hospital population in waiting areas as well as at the bed side and intimate patient care areas.
