From our Teaching Artist workshops and general celebrations of our Young Artists and our programming, there is never a dull moment with ArtWorks!
ArtWorks Founder, Daniela Mendelsohn has co- founded a boutique production company specializing in personalized documentary films that capture life stories. The Jewish Standard writes, “One of the 11 docyourstory films commissioned so far is a 17-minute documentary about Dr. Michael Harris of Englewood, co-director of the Children’s Cancer Institute at Hackensack University Medical Center. ” Dr. Harris is a beloved member of the ArtWorks Advisory council.

Today, December 20th, we are honored to celebrate the birthday of Dr. Michael Harris. We cannot think of a better way than to share this amazing documentary of his story, which was created by our founder, Daniela Mendelsohn and Keren Greenberg of docyourstory. Dr. Harris is not only on the ArtWorks Advisory Council, but was an important contributing member to the creation of ArtWorks. Over the past 15 years, he has helped ArtWorks serve over 75,000 children facing chronic and life-limiting illness. “Beyond Medicine” is a documentary that highlights Dr. Harris’s 40 years of dedication to the field of pediatric hematology oncology. Thank you Dr. Harris so much for your commitment and all that you do to help ArtWorks further its mission. Happy Birthday!!
