Montefiore’s mission- to heal, to teach, to discover and to advance the health of the communities we serve – serves as the driving force behind all of our work, including the Montefiore Fine Art Program and Collection. The Collection is integrated into the daily life of Montefiore, fostering a life-affirming, restorative and supportive environment for patients, families, caregivers, students, faculty, and staff.
We Create Environments.
"In the main entrance, a huge 'light as air' sculpture greets the visitor. It shimmers from white to the most beautiful blue colors. Upon closer look, you see it is made of painted and dried leaves in motion forming a chandelier. You have to see it. All of this takes you away from why you are in the hospital in the first place."
