HSHS St. John’s Hospital will soon be curating the walls of its newly renovated cancer center.

We need our artistic community’s help to enhance the healing environment with calming, inspiring photography.

Ten submissions will be chosen by a panel of cancer center colleagues, doctors, patients and representatives from the St. John’s Foundation’s medical arts committee to be displayed on a 52-foot wall, a focal point within the center. Submitted photographs must celebrate life and represent healing, peace or tranquility in central Illinois. Color palettes should be calming and natural. Selected photographs will have the photographer’s name displayed by the printed work.
