Healing Ceiling Tiles

Carilion Clinic and the Taubman Museum of Art have partnered to support healing through art!

The Taubman mobilized its expertise and resources in art to provide instruction, prompts and materials to fourth and fifth graders at Boones Mill, Fishburn Park, Garden City and Morningside elementary schools. Students from the Temple Emanuel Teen Youth Group also contributed. The young artists hand painted more than 100 ceiling tiles this past school year before COVID-19 shuttered classrooms.

The tiles will be installed at Carilion’s Children’s Hospital to provide comfort and joy to young patients receiving treatment.

Before they are installed, though, you can enjoy them on view in a special community exhibition at the Taubman now through August 30  -- and online here!

And thank you to all who voted for their favorite tile in the People’s Choice Award competition! Voting is now closed, and the winner will be announced here and on the Museum’s Facebook page this week.
