The Woodlands Arts Council, Market Street and area hospitals have announced a collaborative art project to honor health care workers in The Woodlands.

According to a TWAC press release, the organization partnered with all four hospitals in The Woodlands—Memorial Hermann The Woodlands Hospital, Methodist Hospital The Woodlands, CHI St. Luke’s Hospital and Texas Children’s Hospital—to gather selfies of doctors, nurses and other health care providers.


"We wanted to honor our Healthcare Heroes with an artistic display that communicates the power of togetherness and hope during this challenging time,” TWAC board President Maria Holmes said in the release. “The selfies are combined into a rainbow collage that conveys the healing power of the arts to connect our community and foster creativity, innovation and beauty in good times and bad. We look forward to continued collaborations with our hospitals in bringing arts programming to those who need it most.”

Brittany Sloan, the chair of TWAC’s Because Art Matters Committee, worked with graphic designer Hunter Lee Strong to create an art installation with the selfies. The art piece has been installed on the windows of Cos Bar in Market Street below the Cinemark Theatre.
