The Edward M. Kennedy Community Health Center announces that it has received and installed original artwork at its flagship medical facility, located at 19 Tacoma Street, Worcester, MA. Through The Art Connection, a Boston non-profit, Kennedy CHC received artwork from local artists and donors.
The partnership between Kennedy CHC and The Art Connection led to the placement of artwork in the Milford, MA and Framingham, MA medical sites. Artwork displayed at the Worcester site will be viewed by the over 18,000 patients served per year in Medical, Dental, Pharmacy and Behavioral Health departments.
About The Art Connection: The Art Connection was established in 1995 by Fay Chandler, a painter and sculptor working in Boston since the early 1970s. As Fay considered what to do with some of her inventory of work, she became convinced that the best result would be transferring it to interested social service organizations in the community that have no funds for purchasing art.
