Art is many things: beautiful, controversial, funny, expensive. But no matter what it looks like, art has the power to heal us.

Since the 1970s, the staff at Cedars-Sinai Medical Center in Los Angeles has curated a growing art collection that adds some character to the sterile hospital environment. Curator John T. Lange told HuffPost Live he sees the artwork's powerful effects on patients and staff alike, and it's become an integral part of Cedars-Sinai.
