Smith Center for Healing and the Arts

Smith Center for Healing and the Arts is a nonprofit health, education and creative arts organization that serves individuals, families and communities affected by cancer and other serious illnesses. The organization's work is grounded in the idea that each person has tremendous innate abilities to heal in the face of illness.

Founded in 1996 by Washington D.C. artist and benefactor Barbara Smith Coleman,[6][7] together with Michael Lerner,[8][9] Smith Center is located in Washington DC's U Street Corridor.

In May 2008, the organization opened the Joan Hisaoka Healing Arts gallery to promote the understanding and utilization of the arts for healing. The gallery is open to the public and exhibits works that focus on individual, community and global issues.
