Art in Motion is an important fundraising art exhibit hosted by the Rehabilitation Institute of Chicago that brings the thriving art community and philanthropy community of Chicago together, to support art therapy.

Mr. James Rondeau, Curator of Contemporary Art at the Art Institute of Chicago, selected the art works in this highly competitive exhibit where hundreds of artists from around the country submitted their work.

This exhibit embodies the generosity of professional artists whose donated artwork sales proceeds to the RIC Art Therapy program.. RIC’s Art Therapy program is funded solely through philanthropic support, and is one of the key elements that make RIC the #1 rehabilitation hospital in the world. Art Therapy not only allows patients to re-learn motor skills and coordination, but also helps them express the emotions they feel as they adjust to a new, challenging way of life. Some patients even discover previously untapped artistic talent, which they often continue to enjoy for the rest of their lives.
