The Guadalupe Regional Medical Center: The Artist Wall
Sculptures by Marika and photographs by Dennis Martin are on display at the Guadalupe Regional Medical Center Artist Wall through December 2013. This is your opportunity to see sculptures that are on public view for the first and possibly the last time; they are on loan from private collections. Also, The Contortionist is on view for the first time. In addition to the Artist Wall, the medical center has two of Marika’s sculptures in their permanent collection. Maternitree is at the entrance to the Birthing Center and the Cross of St. Bridget is in the chapel. We hope you enjoy the exhibit.
The Guadalupe Regional Medical Center chose St. Brigid’s Cross for the chapel feeling that any chaplain would do well to model their ministry after the life of St. Brigid. Much like St. Brigid, the chaplain often finds that the most sacred “chapel” is at the bedside of the sick and dying. In those holy moments it is always the chaplain’s desire to bring love, peace and comfort through prayer and faith. In the manner of St. Brigid, Chaplains often share God’s love by reaching out to the poor, to those in need and to those whose hearts are hurting.
