Arts & Medicine Institute
Cleveland Clinic's Arts & Medicine Institute was created for the purpose of integrating the visual arts, music, performing arts and research to promote healing and to enhance the lives of our patients, families, visitors and employees.
Fine art is good medicine.
It comforts, elevates
the spirit, and affirms
life and hope.
