Description

Bill Gibbons used a nature theme as a metaphor for Saint Elizabeth’s as a place of healing, hope, and growth. His main entrance lobby painting shows St. Elizabeth’s as it was in the early 20th century , with emphasis on the park-like setting. His reason for this was that “the imagery will turn the mind to thoughts of nature, the beauty of which provides both solace and hope.” His work also represents the de-stigmatization of mental health patients and the compassion that the community is starting to show in regards to their healing process. Gibbons stated that “the quality…will carry a message- it will tell the patients that someone cared enough about them to do some really good work.”
