Our Arts & Healthcare Initiative began at Rapides Regional Medical Center in September, 2003. Since then, we have implemented many programs serving patients, their families and staff.
We regret to announce that Rapides Regional has chosen, after 15 years, not to renew our contract with them to provide innovative arts experiences in their facility for patients, staff and visitors. We certainly enjoyed our work there helping people heal through the arts and hope that one day we will be able to offer our services there once again. If you miss the art gallery and the programming we offered, please express this to Administration at the Hospital.
We are sad to announce that we will no longer be contracted by Rapides Regional to hang art in their gallery. We know that the ever-changing art by local artists that we hung there for many years made a huge difference in the atmosphere of the hospital and we were proud to feature so much quality art on the walls there for all to see.
Silk Banners created as a community project by Arts & Healthcare, Inc. hang in the Rapides Cancer Center.
