Artists Unite to Raise Funds for Heart Health at West Windsor Arts’
Off the Wall Holiday Market
November 4 – December 23, 2023
West Windsor, NJ (November 1, 2023) – For those who love to support the local economy and good causes when they shop for holiday gifts, West Windsor Arts presents its annual Off the Wall Holiday Market. The market highlights over 100 original and affordable artworks and hundreds of handcrafted items made by artisans including jewelry, accessories, ceramics, and one-of-a-kind items for the home.
New this year is a special focus on supporting November as Arts and Health month. Shoppers can encourage healthy hearts with purchases from a special pop-up section of donated artwork.
All proceeds raised will benefit cardiac services and programs at Robert Wood Johnson University Hospital (RWJUH) Hamilton, an RWJBarnabas Health facility.
This project is a continuation of West Windsor Arts’ relationship with RWJUH Hamilton. In the past, West Windsor Arts has collaborated on projects such as Art Kits for Cause and providing musicians to perform in the Cancer Center at RWJUH Hamilton as part of its Holistic Program.
RWJUH Hamilton’s Heart and Vascular Services’ multidisciplinary, integrated and patient-centric approach to care delivery provides patients with a network of comprehensive cardiovascular and thoracic care options, produces results which exceed national quality benchmarks, features the latest technology and innovative trials, and ensures the best team of clinicians will be by your side.
RWJBarnabas Health performs more elective and emergent procedures than any other health care system in New Jersey. You can schedule an appointment with one of New Jersey’s top cardiac specialists at rwjbh.org/heart.
Artists donated work for this special fundraising project by taking on the challenge to create art with the RWJBarnabas Health theme, “Whoever your heart beats for, our hearts beat for you.” 100% of the artist’s portion of the sale will go to cardiac program and services at RWJUH Hamilton. This part of the Off the Wall Holiday Market opens on Sunday, Nov. 19, and will be available throughout the show, while art lasts.
