On August 6, MWPAI welcomed Hospice & Palliative Care’s staff and volunteers on campus to host their annual Brave Hearts program. Brave Hearts is a one-day children’s grief program for kids in Oneida, Herkimer and Madison Counties. The families were greeted on the School of Art Campus by a drum circle which kicked off an afternoon of art activities. After lunch in the cafeteria, the program culminated with a customized tour of the Museum and a personalized balloon release on the front steps.
