The Art Cart

The Art Cart at The Johns Hopkins Hospital began in February 2014 as a unique project to give volunteers the opportunity to deliver arts and crafts to family members of patients in our facility. The Art Cart visits family lounges in The Charlotte R. Bloomberg Children's Center and the Sheikh Zayed Tower. Art Cart service has expanded to include inpatient areas as well. Crafts include paper flowers, handmade cards, clothespin dolls and more.

To request Art Cart service within the Hospital or to become a volunteer, contact the Department of Volunteer Services at 410-955-5924 or
