Last night, the Levinson and Stefani team was proud and wowed at the annual Art in Motion event, a fundraiser hosted by the Rehabilitation Institute of Chicago’s Associate Board and benefiting RIC’s amazing art therapy program.
The Fundraiser features a silent auction of art created both by local artists and participants in RIC’s art therapy program. RIC has a dedicated artist-in-residence, guiding RIC patients as they endeavor to relearn motor skills and coordination. The benefits of the program are much wider than that, though. The struggles addressed, and challenged, through creating these beautiful works of art help patients express the emotions they feel as they adjust to a new, challenging way of life.
At the fundraiser, RIC artists mingled with guests and even were painting throughout the evening. The art is installed in the lobby at Northwestern University’s Lurie Center Ryan Family Atrium, 303 E. Superior St., Chicago, Illinois, through June 18, 2015. We encourage anyone with the chance in downtown Chicago to visit the exhibit and see the amazing work of these talented artists, each with a unique story to tell.
More information about the event can be found on the Art in Motion Facebook page. Information about RIC can be found here.
Levinson and Stefani remains a dedicated sponsor of Art in Motion and RIC, and we are honored to support the renowned and consistently excellent Rehabilitation Institute of Chicago. The work RIC puts in for its patients makes it one of the preeminent rehab facilities around, and we are already anticipating next year’s Art in Motion event benefiting this wonderful organization!
