The Collection of Sheppard Pratt

The Collection has been assembled through the generous philanthropic support of Friends of The Collection, with a lead gift by Bernice Levinson, in memory of her late husband, Donald S. Levinson. All artwork in The Collection is available for public viewing, and self guided tours are available at the reception desk in the Weinberg lobby. The Collection catalogue is available for purchase in the Gatehouse Shop, located in the lobby of the Weinberg Building.

The purpose of this collection is to present art created by trained artists whose lives and works have been influenced by mental illness and/or addiction, thereby contributing to the destigmatization of these disorders. Click on the name of the represented artists to view their work.

Included in The Collection is a specially commissioned ten-panel tapestry, designed and woven by Baltimore artist Wendy Myerberg Jachman that tells the story of the evolution of occupational therapy, which originated at Sheppard Pratt. Click here to view the tapestry thumbnail images.
