LEXINGTON, Va. (WDBJ7) There was a short ceremony outside Carilion Stonewall Jackson Hospital in Lexington.

The rain held off as they unveiled a new sculpture in front. It's the marble figure of a heart in hands, symbolizing the care the hospital provides.

"This is the first piece of art that is symbolizing that the hospital is about, so I think it's interesting for that reason," said sculptor John Mason. "And I'm really so pleased and honored to be asked to do it."

It's also the first artwork to be placed outside the hospital building.
