It's time for another installation of the

Pagosa Springs Medical Center’s Art Wall! 

The PS Arts Council is pleased to invite all local and regional artists to submit their work for the next installation of Pagosa Springs Medical Center's (PSMC) rotating art wall.  

* Artists' works will hang on the art wall in the new addition, where 

   visitors and patients can view and purchase pieces.  

* PSMC provides a locking hanging system and insurance. 

* PSAC supervises all installations.

* Artists are required to sign an agreement holding PSAC and PSMCF


* Art submissions need not be limited to any one theme or style.  

* We are happy to accept both contemporary works as well as traditional 


Buyers will contact the artist directly to purchase art. 

Please note that all pieces, sold and unsold, must remain on the art wall until the next installation on January 15, 2020. While PSAC is not charging a submission fee, artists are asked to consider donating 20% of their PSMCF art wall sales proceeds to Pagosa Springs Arts Council.
