13th Annual “Art From The Heart” Program

At Absolut Care, we love to highlight and display and display our residents’ talents. Each of our 12 facilities has a variety of highly gifted individuals, and we’re so lucky that our residents want to show us what they create!

Aurora Park resident, Suzanne, is a wonderful woman with a knack for painting! She recently created a painting that was accepted to participate in the 13th Annual “Art From The Heart” Program.

This art program is part of The Foundation for Quality Care, Inc., and the New York State Health Facilities Association/New York State Center for Assisted Living (NYSHFA/NYSCAL). The art event reaches out to artists who live in skilled nursing & assisted living facilities. Once applicants have submitted their pieces, an independent panel of judges selects 13 winning entries which will be featured in the 2018 “Art From The Heart” wall calendar. The calendars will be distributed to the artists, their families, NYSHFA/NYSCAL member facilities, state lawmakers, and government officials. Additional pieces will be chosen to be part of the annual public exhibition.

In addition to the wall calendar, the Foundation has teamed up again with the “Legislator Artwork On Loan Program”, where the pieces will be displayed in the offices of local legislators!

Suzanne has worked so hard on this work of art. We are so proud of all her efforts AND for being selected for the 2018 Art From The Heart Wall Calendar. Way to go, Suzanne! 😊
