THE FLOWERS FOR SANTA FE PROJECT OF THE SANTA FE ARTISTS’ MEDICAL FUND

GIVING GIFTS TO THE PATIENTS OF THE HOSPITALS, NURSING HOMES, AND ASSISTED LIVING FACILITIES OF SANTA FE


THE PAINTING FLOWERS FOR SANTA FE PROJECT of the Santa Fe Artists’ Medical Fund was created in May 2020 by the Artists of Santa Fe to paint flower paintings for thr patients of the hospitals, nursing homes, and assisted living facilities of Santa Fe during the time of coronavirus.  When we learned that the medical facilities would no longer accept gifts of live plants and flower bouquets, and that patients were quarantined in their rooms for weeks and months at a time, we decided to paint flowers and give them as unexpected gifts to sick and injured people. Hoping that original paintings would bring joy and love to struggling patients in this difficult time, more than 70 of Santa Fe’s finest artists stepped up and did what comes first and foremost – paint.  And, the paintings are gifts, with nothing expected in return.  If you want more information, go to the Events Page of the website of the Santa Fe Artists’ Medical Fund – www.santafeartistsmedicalfund.org
