Kerrville, TX- Peterson Health celebrates the fifth year of the highly successful Community Art Lending Program. The art program, displaying local and regional artists at Peterson’s Outpatient Rehabilitation Department at the Ambulatory Care Center (ACC), has delighted both staff and patients and continues to grow each quarter. Located at 260 Cully Drive, adjacent to the main hospital, artists are invited to lend their works for three months at a time. Artwork is displayed down the main hallway from the reception area toward the rehabilitation gym, which is one of the most busy and frequented hallways in the facility. Just recently, a new wall was dedicated to the program, due to recent remodeling of the Wound Care Center. The former hallway and entrance to Wound Care has been closed and is now a solid feature wall awaiting art.
The staff is calling for new artists to submit work for display in the new quarter which runs October through December. Artists interested in submitting art for consideration should submit photos of available framed pieces no later than Monday, September 25th.
Open to all Hill Country artists, including high school and university students, the Peterson Community Art Lending Program assists in the promotion of talented artists and offers the patients receiving care in the unit, along with their supportive families and staff, the stimulation
