Cleveland Clinic Art Program was established in 2006 with the mission to enrich, inspire and enliven  patients, visitors, employees and community, and to embody the core values of the institution.

The Art Program is responsible for selecting new art acquisitions, acting in an advisory capacity to the Aesthetics Committee and the Philanthropy Institute to assist with donations of artworks, and providing services ranging from installation to inventory and upkeep of the collection. In addition, the Art Program curates and organizes exhibitions and related educational programming.

The collection includes works by local, national and international artists in all media. The collection of over 5,400 works of fine art is dispersed throughout Cleveland Clinic in public spaces, hallways, and patient rooms. Included are major site-specific commissions and a diverse collection of Modern and Contemporary Art.

Art Program Projects include:
