Thank you for attending the Opening Night Awards & Celebration on February 6, 2014! 

Art in Motion is a fundraiser and juried art exhibition that brings the art community and philanthropy community of Chicago together to support the cause of Art Therapy. James Rondeau, Curator of Modern and Contemporary Art, The Art Institute of Chicago, selects exhibition participants and awards the most outstanding works submitted by hundreds of artists from around the country. All of the professional and patient artwork is for sale with half the proceeds benefiting the RIC Art Therapy program.

With the generous support of Art in Motion donors, RIC's Therapeutic Recreation team engaged in the following programs and activities last year:

  • Resident Art Therapist on site 24 hours-a-week
  • More than 100 patients received individual art therapy treatment
  • More than 700 hours of art therapy services were provided, to both individuals and groups of patients.
