On Thursday, June 5, eVestment’s Atlanta, New York and London offices all hosted The Foundation for Hospital Art’s PaintFest.  In each office, teams of eVestment employees collaborated on paintings which will be donated to healthcare facilities around the world.

The Foundation for Hospital Art provides pre-drawn canvases and the eVestment employees in Atlanta, London and New York worked together to fill in the paintings with various colors. 

Through The Foundation for Hospital Art, over 500,000 volunteers and patients have united in an effort to create over 35,000 paintings for over 2,000 hospitals in 194 countries.

The initial concept of painting for people in hospitals was born in 1975 when John Feight volunteered in Northside Hospital in Atlanta. The idea to establish the Foundation for Hospital Art developed through years of painting in hospitals and seeing the comfort art gave to the patients, medical staff and visitors.

The Foundation for Hospital Art was officially established in 1984 and is dedicated to involving patients and volunteers worldwide to create colorful, soothing artwork donated to hospitals to help soften the often stressful hospital experience.
