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.

Prices for the art begin at $300.
