Brain Injury and Art
Northeast Center for Special Care

The Fine and Performing Arts Program at Northeast Center for Special Care is a part of a larger mission of rehabilitation, recovery and community reentry of individuals with brain injury to recognize the dignity and value of each individual.

Through art humans express their need to see more, to see more clearly, to see beyond the horizon, to see beneath the surface of their thoughts, feeling and the world they live in.

People who have had a traumatic brain injury (TBI) express this need no less and sometimes so much more.

We invite you to meet talented artists and view the works they created - all by individuals with traumatic brain injury (TBI) in the Art Studio - a part of the Fine and Performing Arts Program at Northeast Center for Special Care.

Art adds something special to all our lives. There is no doubt about it. Literature, for example, takes the ordinary stuff of our lives and builds something we can admire. Painting takes the colors that we consider ordinary and creates something spectacular. Similar claims can be made for all of the arts. We ordinary people are exalted when we experience the heights to which art lifts us all.

Writing, painting and playing music make me glow with delight. I am always surprised by my own ability to create a work of art. 

 - Thomas M., Brain Injury Survivor and Northeast Center Fine Arts Program Writer and Artist.
