Love Infusion Center
The Love Art Lab always likes to raise money for a good cause. So when the Bernal Heights Community Center asked its neighbors to hold garage sales to raise money as a benefit, we rolled up our sleves.
Inspired by the chemotherapy infusion room at our doctor's office, we created the Love Infusion Center in our garage. For a donation, garage sale shoppers/neighbors could sit on a red couch and get a "love infusion." Artist Tina Takemoto assisted as "Nurse Ana Phylaxis."
Patients were handed a clipboard with a questionnaire. "Describe your last love infusion. List your love allergies. What part of your body needs love the most?" The Infusion team then lovingly taped a clear plastic tube attached to red liquid in a bag to the part of their body they said needed love. "Patients" could relax on the couch for as long as desired. We infused over 50 people and several pets. We raised over one hundred dollars and the "patients" appeared noticeably refreshed and well loved after their treatment.
