The Creative Center at University Settlement

Based in Bowery, NY, The Creative Center believes that medicine may heal the body but art heals the soul. They started out with free art classes to ladies with cancer and grew to include artist-in-residence programs in over 20 healthcare centers.

The Creative Center also hosts galleries…

 

…that sell the paintings of these cancer and illness survivors. Check out their Flickr page to go through the galleries or browse through the various mediums on their site.
