Arts Repository: Curated list of arts engagements to enjoy from work or home
Signs of Encouragement: Center Stage commissioned artists to create images that exude messages of hope, encouragement and gratitude that we display on signs outside at all four driveway entrances to our medical center to show gratitude and support for our front line workers as they arrive on campus for work and as they leave at the end of a shift. This is an especially tense time for our nurses, physicians, therapists, cleaners, food services folks and all the other employees keeping our hospital running. And yet they arrive at work every day with courage and smiles, ready for what is coming.
Lunch with Center Stage: Summer lunchtime concert series in our outdoor courtyard, featuring local professional ensembles including jazz, classical, soft rock music and more. Check back in May for our 2021 performance schedule!

Murals: Our Coordinator for Artistic Enhancement Betsy Fallat creates murals in clinical and family areas.
Self-Guided Art Tour of our Commissioned Artwork: Our Public Art Committee chooses commissioned art work designed to enhance the environment of clinical and public areas.
