Research has shown that art can help reduce stress, anxiety, and promote healing. With this in mind, Dana-Farber has built a collection of works by local and international artists, which are on display in public spaces and patient areas throughout the Yawkey Center for Cancer Care. Among the works are Andy Warhol's Souper Dress, a Roy Lichtenstein print, Julian Opie LCD works, Harry Benson's photos of the Beatles, and a blown-glass piece by Dale Chihuly. Most of the works are donations. Joyce Kulhawik talks to cancer patients and staff who helped create the collection and the new audio tour. Learn more: http://www.dana-farber.org/AudioArtTour
