ArtWorks Teams with BlackRock to Deliver the Healing Power of the Arts to NYP Komansky Center Kids
ArtWorks Surprised Patients at Phyllis and David Komansky Center for Children's Health at NY-Presbyterian/Weill Cornell Medical Center with an Art Cart Full of Supplies Sponsored by BlackRock!
In addition to the assortment of art supplies, ArtWorks provided a custom designed mobile art cart designed by Brooklyn based Pop Artist Ed Heck, to store and transport these materials with ease. Heck’s bold, bright and whimsical artwork can be found in galleries throughout the world. An ArtWorks bulletin board was placed within the pediatric department. These boards are filled with artwork created by patients, brightening the halls of the hospital and providing children with an avenue to feel proud about their creation. This art cart is funded through the BlackRock Gives New York philanthropic initiative. BlackRock has recently made an effort to expand and quantify their philanthropic efforts and this gift was part of their first grant awards cycle.
