Home Studio: HeART for our Heroes

Our healthcare professionals are working diligently to keep our community safe, and to show our appreciation the MMFA has joined forces with a local Montgomery artist. The artist—who wishes to remain anonymous—is donating personal protective equipment to healthcare facilities and has asked the Museum to collect words and images of encouragement from children across the region to accompany the donation. Our goal: bring a small amount of hope, support, and thanks to our local heroes.

For the safety of all, submissions will be laminated and disinfected before being delivered to healthcare facilities.

Objective

To create original works of art that show appreciation and inspire strength in our healthcare workers and others on the front lines helping those who are battling COVID-19.
