Having art visible in hospitals is believed to support the well-being of patients, families and hospital staff, as well as reduce stress and create a positive, healing environment.
Starting in April 2014 the Northern Lights Health Centre will come to life with art from local artists of Wood Buffalo.
Artists have the opportunity to display and sell their art in the halls of the Health Centre, with a percentage of proceeds from sales donated to the Health Foundation.
The art pieces will be available for sale to the public, with 30 per cent of the sales donated to the Health Foundation.
Art pieces will be displayed for a 60 day period before they are removed and exchanged with new art.
To get your art hung in the first intake, please arrange to have your art dropped off at the Health Foundation office by April 1, 2014.
To become involved in the program, please contact Christina at Christina.firstname.lastname@example.org or call 780-788-1559
