The City of Portland, ME opened their Fifth Annual NAP Exhibition with a wonderful awards reception held on March 4, 2011. The reception was held in the State of Maine room conveniently located in City Hall where the artwork is on display. This enabled all attendees the opportunity to view the 107 pieces of artwork prior to entering the reception room. The ceremony was opened with warm words from Acting City Manager Pat Finnigan, followed by the presentation of the Fifth Anniversary Award to Coordinator Karen Seymour by NAP Program Coordinator Robyn Raskin.
The First Annual NAP Exhibition at Aurora St. Luke’s Medical Center, WI was a huge success! More than 100 employees and their family members entered the show producing 179 piece of artwork. The artwork was displayed along panels in the hospital skywalk where hundreds of employees, patients and visitors can take in all the creative talents. Coordinator Jill Wargolet commented that, “the show has brought a sense of connection and aesthetic appreciation amongst our community.”
