A dental hygienist by day, confined to the tiny, careful, and regimented tasks she accomplished in people’s mouths...

THE HEART OF HEALING Public Sculpture Project
The Heart of Healing public sculptures project has completed two cancer empowerment sculptures.
"I wish Arts for Healing had been here twenty years ago for my mother. She went through cancer treatment feeling isolated. If she had been able to visit the Objects page of this website to see the sculpture objects and read the vignettes of empowerment told by the objects' donors, she would have felt less alone."
--Martia Nelson, Director
Sculpture #2: "Wall Quilt"
