The NYU Langone Art Program and Collection integrates artwork of the highest quality into the healing environments of our new and recently renovated facilities. Conceived by Vicki Match Suna, AIA, vice dean for real estate development and facilities, the program is built through acquisitions, commissions, exhibitions, and donations of art, as well as through other visual arts-related programming. Its collection has a diverse portfolio of works: paintings, sculptures, installation art, and murals.
In recent years, art has become increasingly important to many healthcare environments. Studies have shown that art in this setting can improve patients’ overall health outcomes, treatment compliance, and quality of life. Art also helps create a positive environment for caregivers, helping to reduce stress, and for employees, improving overall workplace satisfaction.
The collections at NYU Langone foster a welcoming, healing environment that supports our mission to treat the whole patient by addressing emotional as well as physical needs.
