Artwork Project

"Stimulating the Mind Nurtures the Body"

The Permanent Display of Artwork from Western New York at Our Lady of Peace

On June 10, 2004, Mount St. Mary's Hospital Foundation and the Our Lady of Peace Nursing Care Residence held an Inaugural Open House to view the newly opened Rehabilitation Unit and view a permanent display of artwork from local artists. To make the Rehabilitation Unit experience more pleasant and enhance the overall quality of life for residents, a display of artwork has been established featuring the works of local artists. The Foundation has created a special endowment fund to expand the collection to help improve the quality of life of our residents while creating a cultural landmark in our community. The endowment of these works will allow us to continue this project, creating a gallery within the home of our residents. Please consider endowing a painting or contributing to the art fund.

Every painting endowed will have a plate engraved with your inscription. All contributions to Mount St. Mary's Hospital Foundation are tax deductible. Please call the Foundation office at (716) 298-2143 for more information.
