WASHOE MEDICAL CENTER EXHIBIT OF POSTERS & PAINTINGS BY STUDENTS IN SUPPORT OF ORGAN & TISSUE DONOR AWARENESS

 

            RENO – Healing Arts at Washoe Medical Center is joining Sierra Eye & Tissue Donor Services, The Transplant Network and the Nevada Organ & Tissue Donation Task Force to promote education and awareness of the desperate need for more organ donors, by sponsoring the Organ & Tissue Donor Poster and Painting Exhibit. 

            The Exhibit is featuring the posters and paintings from northern Nevada high school students who submitted their work for last year’s Transplant Network Organ & Tissue Donor Awareness Poster Event.  With more than 87,000 people in the United States waiting for a lifesaving organ transplant and an estimated 6,100 people who will die this year alone waiting for a suitable donor, these high school students expressed their feelings and concerns for this important issue with their works of art. 

             The exhibit is being held in the Promenade Gallery between Washoe Professional Center and Washoe Medical Center located at 77 Pringle Way.  Along with these original and clever posters are several beautiful paintings done by the students from the advanced art class at Galena High School which express the student’s feelings about organ donation that far exceeds their age.

            The exhibit will remain open for public viewing at Washoe Medical Center through the end of January, 2005, between the hours of 6:00am to 6:00pm.  We invite everyone to come and enjoy these beautiful works of art.
