Must see art exhibit shows off talent of DMC employees, family, patients and volunteers
More than 177 paintings, drawings, prints, textiles and photographs were submitted by staff, family, volunteers and patients, youth and adult, to what is an exciting event that reveals a wealth of artistic talent at DMC.
Art contest winners have been selected, but the exhibit continues through June 24. Visitors to the exhibit can still vote to select two winners for a people's choice award.
The artwork is on display at Harper/Hutzel Hospital lower level near the tunnel, and Children's Hospital of Michigan, lower level also near the tunnel. With titles like "My Doll and Unknown Place," "Red Horses, 2012," "An Ode to a Clothesline," and "Bikes, Bikes, Bikes, 2012," the exhibit holds something for everyone to enjoy.
This is the 7th year that DMC Children's Hospital of Michigan has hosted the National Arts Program® Employee, Volunteers and Families Art Exhibition and the first year for Harper/Hutzel Hospitals' involvement and for DMC wide participation. Cash prizes and stipend for the judges were provided by the National Arts Program®.
In all, 45 staff, including physicians, nurses, art therapy, environmental services, food services, transportation services and others, 55 family members, 19 patients and five volunteers submitted work. The closing reception and arts award ceremony will be held on June 20, at 4:00 pm in the Children's Hospital of Michigan Auditorium. All are invited to attend.
