The Arts & Healing Program at the Inova Schar Cancer Institute, a department of Inova Fairfax Hospital, is a collaboration with the Smith Center for Healing and the Arts, and uses art in its many forms to help support people in treatment and recovery and their loved ones. This innovative program includes a robust permanent art collection and ongoing exhibitions, performing arts events, and other workshops.


The Institute's Joan Hisaoka Healing Arts Gallery will be dedicated on July 8, 2019 with a special reception. Among the works in the Institute's collection is Self-Nurture by member Jen Sheckels, which was purchased in April 2019 while on display at Pyramid Atlantic Art Center, in Hyattsville, MD.
