Welcome to DidiArt Angels
What We Do / Our Mission
DidiArt Angels is a non-profit Volunteer Artists Organization. No one gets paid, there are no salaries, all donations are for paints and transportation. We are a Tax Exempt 501(C)3 Status organizathion with thanks to Stacy O'Haire Fahey at the Proskauer Rose Law Firm.
We are a group of VOLUNTEER ARTISTS who create free murals and paintings for HOSPITAL PEDIATRIC ER'S, SCHOOLS, CHILDREN'S LIBRARIES, INSTITUTIONS, ASSISTED LIVING, SENIOR HOMES and the DA's CRIMES AGAINST CHILDREN BUREAU.
Our mission is to wipe out white drab walls and replace them with BEAUTIFUL, HEALING, JOYOUS MURALS, using art to distract the children/patients/seniors/disabled and crime victims while they go through different procedures. Our art work includes painting cheerful ceiling tiles in medical facilities.
How We Got Started
In 2004 as a volunteer artist, I connected with MT SINAI MEDICAL CENTER through good friends JUDY COLE, KARL SCHROEDER & Mt Sinai's own DR ILENE WILETS.
That same year I painted an 8 foot Panda which is installed in NYC's PS 124 in Chinatown. While walking through the Mt Sinai PED/ER I had a vision to paint murals with different themes for every room. With contributions of paints and 3 volunteers we painted a "Beach" Mural. More rooms and volunteers followed. To fill the need to "wipe out the white walls" in New York, New Jersey, the surrounding areas and now Canada, I formed DidiArt Angels.
