Generosity Provides Wonder, Joy & Comfort Through Inspire Arts

About Inspire Arts

For many of the patients, families, and employees at Hennepin Healthcare, art has provided a powerful sense of wonder, joy, and comfort. Our healing arts program Inspire Arts brings the power of the arts directly to the Hennepin Healthcare community, helping to humanize the healthcare experience, building personal resources and coping skills, and helping patients use less pain medication and heal faster.

Inspire Arts oversees the Artist in Residence and Music Therapy programs.

Inspire Arts provides much-needed hope and comfort for patients and families throughout our hospital and clinics. A sterile environment becomes joyful and welcoming. Talents are uncovered and diverse voices are heard. Most importantly, stress is released.
