The Art Experience at Cedars-Sinai
Is it possible to experience some of the world's greatest artworks at a hospital? It is if you're a patient, visitor or staff member at Cedars-Sinai. See works by Pablo Picasso and Marc Chagall, sculptures by Jonathan Borofsky and Claes Oldenburg—all part of a collection of masterpieces that can inspire your imagination, reduce stress and trigger healing.
Each artwork is the result of generous donations that started 50 years ago. Since then, the therapeutic-art collection has grown to include more than 4,000 pieces by more than 1,200 artists.
