The Art of Healing is a fundraiser benefiting the Community Health Center of Lubbock and the LCG Medical Society Foundation

The proceeds helps CHCL keep up with the growing demand of taking care of all ages and families with services like primary medical, dental, vision, and mental health services.

He will bring more than 300 pieces of art that will include Marc Chagall, Salvador Dali, Picasso and several other works from other artists that are up and coming.

Prices for the art begin at $300.
