Hospital to unveil children's art
DANVILLE — Presence United Samaritans Medical Center officials will unveil the artwork from its annual Children's Art Program on Thursday.
The program will begin at 6 p.m. in the cafeteria of the hospital, 812 N. Logan Ave., Danville.
The program features original artwork from 21 students from area elementary schools, which were selected by school art instructors. The pieces will be professionally matted, framed and hung in the medical center for two years.
Afterward, the artwork will be returned to the students and their families.
"This is one of our favorite programs," said Becky Hawkins, director of volunteer services and the program coordinator. "The unveiling is always fun for the kids and their families. Then the real treat is to have these colorful, original pieces the children create hanging around the hospital."
