Arthouse.NYC Presents The Hero Art-Project, Portraits To Honor Healthcare Heroes From Around The World

 ARTHOUSE.NYC presents The Hero Art-ProjectT, portraits to honor healthcare heroes from around the world who have lost their lives while fighting COVID-19 while selflessly saving the lives of thousands of their fellow citizens.

The Hero Art-Project pairs members of ARTHOUSE.NYC’s artistic community with family members of doctors, nurses, and other healthcare providers lost to COVID-19.

Our artists work with the families to create multi-media portraits of these medical heroes to celebrate their lives, sacrifices, and legacies. Each family is able to select the artist and art style that they feel most represents the spirit of their loved one and to collaborate with the artist to capture their soul.

The goal of the Hero Art-Project is to bring about love and healing throughout our global communities, and honor these heroic souls to give back with love and art.  The project is close to founder Susannah Perlman’s heart as she lost her mother to COVID-19.

“We wanted to give back to the heroic communities that have been on the frontlines, hence The Hero Art Project was conceived, featuring artists from around the world,” said Susannah Perlman, ARTHOUSE.NYC curator. “This public tribute is especially poignant as many of the families were not allowed to have public funerals and the physical comfort of many of their loved ones during the lockdown. We have every type of healthcare worker represented in The Hero Art Project: doctors, nurses, PAs, NAs and EMTs. It is our hope that the art will convey the human lives and stories behind the statistics.” Perlman lost her own mother, a former healthcare worker to Covid in December 2021.

Now, we have very exciting news! The Hero Art Project, portraits of healthcare heroes will be exhibiting on the National Mall in Fall 2022.

This wouldn’t be possible without the help of our generous partners at The Brave of Heart Fund and E4E Relief for making this exhibition and memorial a reality.
