Look up! Project inspires trauma patients through art

PHILADELPHIA — Julie Nolan is an art therapist at Jefferson Health Magee, a rehabilitation hospital in Philadelphia that helps people recover from traumatic injuries.

Knowing that patients spend a lot of time on their backs for therapy, Nolan came up with the idea of ​​painting ceiling tiles with inspirational messages so patients could see something bright and encouraging while they did their exercises.

The “LookUp! Project” allows patients to work together on the masterpieces.

They enjoy it while improving their motor skills and cognition through art therapy.

Thanks to the project, the hospital is now filled with colourful, inspirational ceiling tiles!
