DETROIT (WWJ) – Attention all artists! DMC Sinai Grace Hospital wants to display your best work.
The Detroit hospital is looking for nine local artists to paint murals in their new Cancer Infusion Center. The art will be on display in the waiting area and in eight patient infusion treatment rooms.
The winner will be selected by the hospital’s Patient-Family Advisory Council.
“Infusion patients are sometimes having infusion therapy for eight hours at a time,” The DMC’s Emily Moorhead told WWJ’s Dr. Deanna Lites. “And to have something beautiful to look at and to reflect on, to create a healing environment is really what we’re going for.”
Said Sinai-Grace CEO Conrad Mallett, “Patients spend a lot of time receiving infusions and we hope that each of the murals will make the patient experience more pleasant during their journey.” [View the contest flier]
