The True Art of Healing

As an artist, I think we need relationships, not just with other people, but with art and the spaces in our environments.
Dr. Rob Downey speaks with Carla Cope, a local artist who has created the well-known video background for the Field Notes podcast. They discuss the importance of art on the journey to healing and recovery, and how it can be implemented into hospitals to brighten the mindset of patients.
