Memorial Health Care, TN Extends Exhibition

For the second year in a row Melissa Tinker coordinated the Fourth Annual National Arts Program® for Memorial Health Care System located in Tennessee. This year’s exhibition was hung on the second floor hallway of the hospital between the Surgery waiting room and the Emergency Room, providing visitors with a welcome diversion while waiting in a hospital setting. Melissa commented that, “our patients, visitors, staff and everyone who walks down the hallway benefit from the art.”
 
The NAP show always receives such positive feedback from the employees and visitors to the hospital that Melissa extended the length of the exhibition this year. The show was on display for a little more than three months, opening at the end of September and continuing through the beginning of January. The NAP believes this continued exposure will help to increase participation in the future.
