Artists in Residence


Our Artists-in-Residence (AIRs) provide fine and expressive art encounters at patients’ bedsides and in clinical settings. Since January 2011, Boston Children’s Hospital has employed AIRs who offer creative writing, video making, painting, cartooning, arts history, and visual arts activities.

Together, AIRs provide artistic opportunities on all inpatient units, all intensive care units, dialysis, out-patient infusion center, primary care, the ninth-floor family resource room, inpatient psychiatry unit, the Martha Eliot Health Center, and Boston Children’s Hospital at Waltham.

Current projects include creative writing, poetry, video art, origami, digital art, cartoon art, collage and mixed media art, sculpture, and jewelry-making to name a few.
