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.
