Gundersen St. Joseph's is launching a new community art wall program to beautify its new facility and help promote art as a healing practice. The program allows local artists to display their work in the building for up to three months.
"We always had this idea that there should be a space where we could display the work of local artists," said Dan Howard, program developer and director of marketing and community relations at Gundersen St. Joseph's Hospital and Clinics. "Art gives us the chance to create, invent and imagine. I'm a believer in the healing power of creating and experiencing art."
The community art wall is a combined gift from former Gundersen St. Joseph's interim CEO Garith Steiner and his wife, Julie, along with Dan Howard, his wife, Sarah, and their two children.
Those interested in applying for the exhibit can find more information on the Community Art Wall Program Page.
