  • Art at Spring View

    Eight paintings by Lebanon Middle School students will be on display in the hallways at Spring View Hospital for the next 12 months. The art students created their own versions of paintings by other artists. According to Heather Lamkin, the director of physician recruitment and marketing for Spring View, the hospital donated money for art supplies for the project. At the end of the year, each painting will be sold to the highest bidder, and the proceeds will go to the LMS art program. Anyone interested in purchasing a painting can call (270) 692-3441 to place a bid.
