Supporting patients with chronic pain, and pallative caregivers
You and your family or caregivers are invited to visit the Crocker Art Museum to explore the wonders of art and the creative mind. Enjoy the simple pleasures that come from discovering inspiring works of art as a trained guide leads you through facilitated group conversations about select pieces of art. No prior art knowledge is necessary.
After the tour, you are welcome to stay and enjoy the Crocker galleries on your own, or simply relax in the Museum’s courtyard.
The goal of Art Rx is to encourage positive experiences that reduce the burden of chronic pain and caregiver stress through specialized tours of the museum and facilitated discussion. The program is free and open to any individual with chronic pain and pallative caregivers. In addition, participants are encouraged to invite family members, friends, and caregivers to attend free of charge.
