The Mission of Gilly Art is as follows:

"Gilly Art is a comprehensive interactive program aimed at the art of distraction for children undergoing medical care."

The Vision of Gilly Art is to embrace the idea that “life’s short, be silly.” It’s a belief taken to heart and presented in a body of works that highlight whimsical animals in comical settings with an educational flare. The lighthearted nature of Gilly Art embodies the feelings of a carefree childhood.

Yet, for some children faced with disease, long term treatments and hospitals, life can be scary and difficult. Through the cheerful works
of Gilly Art, the goal is to, at least temporarily, take a child’s mind off their illness and distract them with a whimsical look on life.
