ROANOKE, Va. (WDBJ) - Carilion employees are taking part in a special art healing project through the hospital’s Dr. Robert L.A. Keeley Healing Arts Program.

They are painting a Healers’ Circle Mural to promote connection, restoration and healing. The mural is right outside the Carilion Roanoke Memorial Hospital next to the footbridge over the river.

Employees can stop by to paint through next week from 10:30 a.m. to 1 p.m., and no artistic experience is needed.

“We could add a little color, a little joy, but primarily invite employees to have an opportunity to express themselves, to connect with others outside of the hospital setting, and to work together to bring unity,” Cristin Kovacs, Artist in Residence withthe Keeley Healing Arts Program at Carilion, said.

The employees are painting mandalas, which represent healing and tranquility.
