New Year Features New Work
Peterson Health moves into 2018 with the award-winning Community Art Lending Program firmly in place and moving towards its 6th year. Shares Lisa Winters, Director of Marketing and Community Relations, “We cannot thank our more than 60 participating artists for lending their time and talents with the patients, families, employees, physicians, and guests who daily visit out Outpatient Rehabilitation Department at the Ambulatory Care Center. Painters and photographers let us showcase their work for months at a time. The artwork has not only added beauty to our facility, but is also frequently used in speech and occupational therapy for both children and adults. Art is truly healing!”
The Community Art Lending Program is structured to feature local and regional artists and photographers at Peterson’s Outpatient Rehabilitation Department at the Ambulatory Care Center (ACC). Recognized by the Texas Hospital Association as a “Showcase Award” winner, the changing and wide-variety of art has garnered local and now state attention.
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.
Peterson Health is calling for new artists to submit work for display in the new quarter which runs January through March. Artists interested in submitting art for consideration should submit photos of available framed pieces no later than Friday, December 29th.
If you are a local artist or photographer and would like to participate this year, simply email photos of available pieces to Lisa Winters at firstname.lastname@example.org or call 830.258.7628.
