ArtConnection donates to McDonald House

Posted 2/8/13

PROVIDENCE – The ArtConnection-RI, which strives to build connections between artists and their communities through nonprofit organizations, donated eight original works of art to the Ronald McDonald House of Providence, which provides a temporary home for families with children receiving treatment at local hospitals.

The pieces were all completed by Rhode Island and Massachusetts artists. They are located throughout the house on Gay Street.

“The Ronald McDonald House [focuses] on providing a positive environment and these new pieces all enhance the soothing and uplifting atmosphere of the house. Art also provides respite from the clinical setting of hospitals,” said CEO Michael Fantom in a statement.

The Ronald McDonald House of Providence also runs the Ronald McDonald Family Room at Hasbro Children’s Hospital.

The organization’s programs also allow families to spend more time with an ill child, ease financial burdens, provide a sense of normalcy, and keep families together during a medical crisis.
