Art for the heart




The Arkansas Democrat-Gazette has a super feature story today (subscription required) by Bobby Ampezzan on the artists-in-residence program at Arkansas Children's Hospital, where Hamid Ebrahimifar and Elizabeth Weber work with the patients. In the article, Hamid and a 7-year-old heart transplant patient make art by playing "hockey" with tongue depressors on a piece of paper, batting a paint-soaked ball back and forth. Weber fills little medicine cups with paint to work with her 6-year-old patient. What a great program. You can see the children's work — such as the cars Hamid made with older patients — at the Thea Foundation at 401 Main in North Little Rock. The show runs through Jan. 28.
