A hospital corridor isn't the most inspiring of places, but adding a little bit of art might make a big difference.
The Art League of Hilton Head is displaying work of its member artists in the central corridor of Hilton Head Hospital. About 40 pieces are hanging, ranging from paintings to photography to a series of handmade scarves that tell the story of a breast cancer survivor.
The hospital's volunteer services contacted the art league about collaborating on an exhibit in an attempt to liven up the central corridor, said hospital spokeswoman Kelly Presnell in a release.
"We believe that art helps healing," she said.
Never miss a local story.
The exhibit also gives the art league a chance to display their members' work outside of its usual space in the Walter Greer Gallery at the Art League of Coastal Carolina. The so-called "pop-up galleries" allow the public who may not normally go to the Greer Gallery to see the league's work, organizers said.
"It's quite a remarkable exhibit," said Nancy O'Neil, who organized the show for the art league.
The exhibit will be in place for the next four months and the selection will change in the fall. All art is for sale. The hospital is at 25 Hospital Center Blvd.
