ARTDOCS NASHVILLE (Artists Receiving Treatment Doctors Offering Crucial Services) is a new 501c3 charitable organization in Nashville offering no-cost medical services for artists without health insurance. ARTDOCS was founded in New Orleans in 1999 by art gallery owner Jonathan Ferrara, Vincent Morelli and a group of physicians and volunteers.

On October 15 ARTDOCS Nashville, held the first annual URBAN ARTS BIZARRE in the Arcade, located in Nashivlle’s 5th Street Historic District to raise money to cover health care costs for Nashville’s uninsured visual artists and muscians.
