Several years ago, Kerner Bobley was diagnosed with Rheumatoid Arthritis and Sjogren’s Syndrome. Step-by-step, she used a walking cane to walk The Woodlands Waterway Art Benches as a private “healing art crawl” for herself. She also kept a journal about how the different artworks she encountered made her feel. After many weeks, she finally reached the final art bench in the then 14-member collection. At this point, she no longer needed a cane. It was an emotional turning point in her medical treatment and in the relationship she had forged with public art. It was here the idea for ARTFEEL was born.
