Magee Rehabilitation Hospital’s Art Therapy Participants Featured in New Exhibit at the Philadelphia Museum of Art
Date:8/15/2013

Philadelphia, PA (PRWEB) August 15, 2013

Magee Rehabilitation Hospital’s art therapy participants are being featured in the Community Partnerships Exhibit at the Philadelphia Museum of Art. The exhibit, housed in the Museum’s Education Corridor, will be on display August 7 through September 22. A reception to celebrate the patients’ artwork and raise awareness and support for Magee’s Art Therapy Program will be held at the Museum on Wednesday, September 11 from 5:30 to 7:00 p.m.

“We are thrilled that patients participating in our art therapy program have the opportunity to showcase their work in such a world-class institution,” said Lori Tiberi, M.A., ATR, Art Therapist at Magee Rehabilitation Hospital. “Our patients have benefited tremendously from our partnership with the Philadelphia Museum of Art’s Accessible Program, and we are all grateful to the Museum for involving us in this impressive exhibit.”

Since the inception of the program more than a decade ago, Magee’s Art Therapy program has served more than 2,000 individuals with disabilities of all levels. Patients that have incurred life-altering injuries require long-term physical and emotional rehabilitation, and art therapy helps them cope with this process and is often regarded as a crucial part of their recovery. Art therapy has also been shown to help people increase self-esteem, resolve conflicts, reduce stress, inspire self-discovery and achieve insight.

The Philadelphia Museum of Art’s Division of Education and Public Programs builds and maintains partnerships with community organizations, schools and social-service agencies, offering programs and educational opportunities that connect diverse communities with the Museum’s rich collections and resources. The Community Partnership Exhibit highlights artwork from many of the Museum’s partners, including Magee Rehabilitation Hospital.

Magee will host a reception at the Museum on September 11 from 5:30 to 7:00 p.m. to celebrate the patients’ artwork and to help raise awareness and support for the hospital’s Art Therapy Program. Tickets start at $75. To purchase tickets, please call the Magee Development Office at 215.587.3090 or email giving(at)mageerehab(dot)org.
