Casey would like to share an article, published on Tuesday, August 19, 2014, in the Wall Street Journal about hospitals and art: "More Hospitals Use the Healing Powers of Public Art: Hospitals are Giving Artwork a Higher Priority" by Laura Landro.

Casey holds membership with two of the reporting organizations cited: the Arts & Health Alliance, as well as the Center for Healthy Design.
This is a rather timely article, as Casey's popularity is growing in the healthcare industry for just this reason, her natural elements and layering of color find themselves organically on trend, according to the research noted: patients are positively affected by nature themes…that convey a sense of security and safety. Casey describes her art as offering contemplation, serenity, color and nature coming together in a visual rest stop.
The article points out "Hospitals aren't shying away from art whose content is open to interpretation or might make patients reflect." Casey's artwork is found to be both appealing and commanding. As Casey puts it, she intends her compositions "to encourage reflection, introspection and exploration. They allow the viewer a space to engage. It's just the viewer and the art in an intimate field of private contemplation."
She has private collections in two major medical facilities, held at both Fletcher Allen Health Care and at the Dartmouth Hitchcock Medical Center.
Casey Blanchard's art can positively affect an atmosphere in an inviting, colorful and powerful way, whether it is in a medical facility, a hotel, or even a home.
