UConn HealthAuxiliary

Art Collection

“The Auxiliary started this collection and I think UConn Health would be barren without it. We think the art supports the people who work here, the patients, the families and the community. We think it gives UConn Health a visual power that makes people feel good.”

Linda Webber
UConn Health Art Curator

The Auxiliary started collecting art for patient rooms, clinic rooms and hallways in 1979. We formed the Art Advisory Committee, which included local artists, art faculty from UConn and other Connecticut universities, UConn Health employees and auxiliary board members. This committee solicited local artists for donations to the UConn Health collection. In 1984, we donated all the art to UConn Health. Today the collection includes more than 1,500 paintings, sculptures, quilts, photographs and murals, and it continues to grow.

The Celeste LeWitt Gallery, in the rear of the Food Court at UConn Health, has rotating art shows.
