ART GALLERY

ART GALLERY

 

Since 2010, Janssen has been curating a robust art collection, featuring contributions by patients, caregivers, patient advocates, and even our own scientists.

The common thread among all these artists is that each has been affected, in some way, by the diseases and illnesses we’re committed to treating, preventing, intercepting, and curing.

We feel art is a way to visually articulate our determination to never stop innovating for the patients who rely on us – much like the artists featured in our gallery are determined to never stop creating and doing the things they love the most.

Tap each box to learn more about the piece of artwork, and artist.
