East Tennessee Children’s Hospital engages nearly 8,000 people across the
region, celebrating Children’s Hospital and the new Scripps Networks Tower.
East Tennessee Children’s Hospital partnered with Project S.N.A.P. on a large scale community engagement program that resulted in the creation of a giant 12’ x 15’ mosaic mural permanently on display in the lobby of the new Scripps Networks Tower.
Nearly 8,000 patients, families, employees, students in local schools, and community members helped to create the giant mosaic mural which came to life thanks in large part to a generous gift from Johnson & Galyon Construction honoring long time East Tennessee Children’s Hospital Board member Jim Bush.
The individual artworks in the mosaic reflect the theme “Piecing Together a Healthy Tomorrow,” and were used to create the mosaic mural which depicts East Tennessee from a child’s perspective. Every person who created an artwork can find their artwork and exact location in the Project S.N.A.P. Online Art Museum.
To me the mosaic represents the health of our children in this region. This is an opportunity for our family to reflect goodness and put an imprint on something that's going to be here forever."
Participants can access the mosaic mural online in the project S.N.A.P. Online Art Museum, read and share their artist’s statement, and see how their artwork fits into the “big picture”. The mosaic mural is also on display in the “Featured Programs” in the Project S.N.A.P. Online Art Museum.
