Man and Animals: Relationship & Purpose

An Art Exhibition

Since the dawn of time, man’s relationship and purpose with animals has varied across cultures. Some view animals as spiritual beings while other cultures view animals as a food source. In our society, for many, animals have become loved companions and family members.

The bond between animals and humans can often be deep and profound and can resonate with us in deeply personal and meaningful ways. No two people relate to animals the exact same way and many of us relate to animals in many, often contradictory ways.

Thank you to those who submitted pieces for inclusion in our latest exhibition.

Exhibition will run: December 17, 2012 - March 1, 2013

Community Art Wall in the Prairie Center

The Prairie Center, home of the Avera Cancer Institute and Avera Surgery Center, is a place that provides not only hope for our patients, but also a place that welcomes and engages our community. We listened to what our patients wanted in a building—from architectural design to what style of artwork is in a waiting room. Avera McKennan understands and embraces the healing power of art and is excited to unveil a digital community art wall.
