About Art for Recovery
The Ernest H.Rosenbaum MD Art for Recovery program provides a safe environment where adults can express the intense feelings that arise in life-threatening illnesses.
It nurtures the aesthetic sensibilities of patients, visitors, and medical staff at the various campuses of UCSF Medical Center and in the community, and creates a safe haven for patients and staff to be heard, to express their feelings and find support.
We invite you to explore the creative spirit of Art for Recovery participants and programs.
