The Cleveland American Heart Association asked the members of the Cleveland Stroke Club (survivors and caregivers) to create canvases depicting their recovery from their stroke. They generously provided materials, with paint being donated by Sherwin Williams Paint Company. This is one of fifteen works of art created one night in September 2015 and later displayed at the 2015 Cleveland Heart Walk in downtown Cleveland where hundreds of people came together to support the American Heart Association as they walked and ran for their own health.
We have created greeting cards to celebrate the art and grace of stroke recovery. Our artists were assisted by our much beloved member, Katie Kern-Pilch, who is an art therapist.
One additional member, Raj, has recently added his excellent winter scene to our collection.
Each of our members have added their story to the back of each card.
