Silver Cross Replacement Hospital Needs Art

Silver Cross will open its new hospital in New Lenox on February 26, 2012. 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

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 medical center buildings 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.
