Silver Cross will open its new hospital in New Lenox . We are looking for professional artists from Chicago and surrounding suburbs to be part of this exciting project.
If you are interested in submitting your work, please email email@example.com
Art to Help Patients Heal! How do you choose artwork for a hospital being built around principles of evidence-based design of healing environments? By following principles of evidence-based art selection, not only for the art that will hang on the walls of patient rooms but for the sculptures, paintings, photography, textiles and other artwork that will appear throughout the and grounds.
Research confirms that art does more than merely decorate the walls; well-chosen art actually helps people feel better and heal more quickly. Silver Cross is working with the country's local arts consultants for hospitals, Kathy Hathorn of American Art Resources, who will be selecting the artists whose work will be purchased for the Silver Cross Replacement Hospital . American Art Resources, in turn, wants to consider as many local professional artists as possible, when their work meets these evidence based guidelines.

Please take two minutes to take action and send a message to your member of Congress in support of the National Endowment for the arts.
Several major newspapers across the country interviewed Americans for the Arts President and CEO Bob Lynch in response to the dubious notion that cutting the arts will actually reduce the nation’s deficit.
Since 1965, the National Endowment for the Arts has been serving arts organizations and artists in every state and every community. The arts not only play an important role in our nation’s well-being and foster creativity and innovation, but they also create jobs and prepare our workforce to compete in the global economy. Including the arts in a comprehensive and formal education for every student is critical.
