All Hearts Beat is a community-based arts project created by artist Jamie Crooke Powell in collaboration with the health care organization CHAPCare.
The community-based visual art project “All Hearts Beat” is an art and advocacy project focused on health prevention and wellness. The goal of the project is to encourage people to utilize health services to remain or regain their health, and promote health prevention through a positive relationship to their own body. The project will take place over a one-month period that will lead up to the next national healthcare insurance open enrollment period that will begin in November. During the residency people will be able to sit with the artist for a “pulse reading,” which will result in a custom image based on the beat of their pulse. The project will also include a video installation, sculpture, and a culminating event. People of all ages are invited to participate in the project.
