RIC's ArtFutura 2013

13th Annual ART IN MOTION

Opening Night Awards & Celebration on June 11, 2015!

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 awards the most outstanding works submitted by hundreds of artists from around the country. All the professional & patient artwork is for sale with proceeds benefiting the RIC Art Therapy program.

RIC’s Art Therapy program is funded solely through philanthropic support, and is one of the key elements that make RIC the #1 rehabilitation hospital in the world. In addition to traditional physical, speech, and occupational therapy, art therapy is an integral part of a patient’s care at RIC. Art Therapy not only allows patients to relearn motor skills and coordination, but also helps them express the emotions they feel as they adjust to a new way of life. Some patients even discover previously untapped artistic talent.

Here are just a few of the things that your support as an Art in Motion sponsor will make possible:

  • Resident Art Therapist on site 24 hours-a-week to initiate and lead programs;
  • Over 700 hours of art therapy services provided, to both individuals and groups of patients;
  • One year of twice-weekly movement therapy classes at RIC’s Health and Fitness Center.
