Get Your Art in Healthcare Environments

Posted on 10 April 2016

Working with artists every day led us to compile a list of frequently asked questions in which artists are eager to find the answers. This is how we developed our amazing agenda and set of speakers for our Success Summit. So what are the questions you wonder?

What are healthcare facilities looking for in an artist and how do I get my artwork considered for hospital projects?

It’s not new news, but as more studies surface about the benefits of artwork in healthcare facilities like how artwork reduces patient stress and anxiety, and increases staff satisfaction and retention, prestigious institutions around the nation are increasing their budgets to include artwork to promote happiness and healing.

Recently completing one of the largest installations of artwork in a Cincinnati area hospital, we have a incredible duo who will be tag-teaming to answer the much anticipated question.


In this session, Pam Irvin and Julia Schenk will give you answers to all these questions and lead a detailed discussion of why Art and Wellness is an important issue for healthcare facilities. You’ll also take away valuable information on how to promote your work, discover what potential clients are looking for, how they budget for art and how timing is critical in the overall process.  She will give you insider information on the critical role she played in placing over 300 original paintings, mixed media works, sculptures and drawings into one of the larges hospitals in the country – Cincinnati Children’s Hospital.

Julia Schenk, Cincinnati Children's Hospital, Success Summit speaker

Julia Schenk, BS Decisions Sciences, has been with Cincinnati Children’s for 11 years.  Julia began her career coordinating outpatient clinical operations and has since moved into a space and occupancy planning position within Design, Construction and Space Management.  Her current role of space and occupancy planner involves planning builds for and renovation of outpatient clinic and office settings, with art serving an integral part of the creation and renovation of space.  Julia believes that art plays a vital role in the health and well-being of a child and his/her family – whether the child is part of the art making process, an appreciator of the art, or both.  Furthermore, Julia knows that art is inspirational and motivational for a company’s employees, and especially in a hospital setting, as art serves as an uplifting reminder of why they work there.

By understanding the process of how healthcare occupancy planners and interior designers select artwork for hospitals, outpatient centers, and treatment facilities you’ll increase your business savvy and competitive advantage to be considered for projects and sell more art!


The Success Summit is now $490.00 for a two-day conference packed with personal and professional development sessions on everything you need to know to be successful in today's art market.
