The hospital is working with a contractor to find 300 pieces of art for the new wing.

They are calling on local artists to submit pieces.

Research shows that viewing specific kinds of art can have immediate positive health benefits. They say they are looking for pieces that will help people relax and promote wellness.

Capital Campaign Officer T. Jones says, “It can be any medium of art work, so we’re looking for really kind of the full experience from paintings, textile, pottery and glass.”

Chief Development Officer Julie Jarema says, “We are just excited to put various pieces of art in our hospital for our patients and I think that’s the most exciting thing is it is a stress reliever.”

They will be hosting a virtual info session for interested artists on October 7.
