Peterson Regional Medical Center (PRMC) proudly celebrates the second year of the Community Art Lending Program. The highly successful art program, displaying local and regional artists at PRMC’s Outpatient Rehabilitation Department at the Ambulatory Care Center (ACC) located at 260 Cully Drive, adjacent to the main hospital, has delighted both staff and patients and continues to grow each quarter.
The idea was instigated with excitement by the staff at the Outpatient Rehab Unit. Shares Occupational Therapist, Martha Davis, ‘Art is used in many ways in our workplace. Here at the ACC, the colors have been changed to create a calming atmosphere. The hallway beside the pool has been repainted from white to teal which creates an optical illusion that the walk is not as long. Resting areas along the corridor now feature colorful cushions. To further the restfulness of the seating along the hallway, we would now like to feature the work of local artists on a rotating basis for both our patients and staff to enjoy daily.’
Open to all Hill Country artists, including high school and university students, the Peterson Community Art Lending Program assists in promotion of talented artists and offers the patients receiving care in the unit, along with their supportive families and the staff, the stimulation, energy and inspiration of an artistic environment while in our facility for healing.
Shares Marketing and Community Relations Director Lisa Winters, ‘We are blessed to be surrounded by an abundance of amazing artists. Peterson recognizes that we have this wonderful wall space at the ACC and we know there is no better way to utilize that space than by featuring the special touches and beauty our Hill Country artists can add. Our artists can be showcased and our patients can be inspired. What a win-win!”
Peterson is calling all interested artists to join the program. Entries are selected by staff for each quarter (January-March, April-June, July-September, October-December).
