On Oct. 18, Karen Wong, president of the Robert Chinn Foundation, presented a $5,000 grant to International Community Health Services Foundation that will help connect the arts with health through a vibrant community arts space at the Shoreline Clinic.

The grant will help extend the clinic’s capacity for community-curated arts exhibitions that focus on community, social issues and topics related to health care and wellness. This year, the clinic opened a historical exhibit telling ICHS’ 45-year story and highlighting its milestones. ICHS plans to extend the exhibit area to additional space.

“We’re appreciative of this generous gift from the Robert Chinn Foundation and what it allows us to create,” said Ron Chew, ICHS foundation director. “So often public spaces are sterile and even unwelcoming. Our community gallery elevates our lobby space to encourage reflection, connection and beauty.”

The Robert Chinn Foundation Grant Program was established to promote and support programs of nonprofit organizations devoted to art, culture, health and youth development.
