BMH Women’s Board Brings Local Art to Bodine Lobby
Bryn Mawr Hospital Women's Board is raising funds for the Hospital
through their Bodine Lobby Art Project. The Project showcases the
works of various local artists, the works of whom are
displayed for several months at a time. Twenty percent of sales
benefit Bryn Mawr Hospital.
The current exhibition features the paintings of Angela Scully of Wayne.
A self-taught artist, Angela’s watercolors focus on colorful and
energetic still life, landscapes and animals. Her works are in many
private collections and are often shown in galleries in the Philadelphia
area where she has won several awards. Angela is inspired by epic
seascapes and clouds reflecting on open land. An ardent animal lover,
she also enjoys capturing their spirit and expression.
“The Women’s Board is proud to partner with Angela Scully to bring
the healing power of art to our patients and our community,” state
Liz Clothier, Daphne MacMillan and Cackie Rogers, administrators of the
Boding Lobby Art Project.
The Connection between Art and Healing
Not only do today’s healthcare consumers expect more pleasant
surroundings, there is also a growing body of research which shows that
decorating hospitals with art can have a profoundly positive effect on
the physical healing process.
Art is a positive distraction, directly
or indirectly, in a variety of
situations. Research has proven that it
can measurably reduce:
Patient and employee anxiety and
The need for pain-relieving
Depression associated with
chemotherapy, dialysis and other
Operative recovery times
Length of hospital stay
Employee turnover and missed
It also measurably increases patient and
employee satisfaction and patient,
visitor and employee perception of
quality of care.
