Crouse Health’s diversity and inclusion committee in February highlighted the diverse workforce in the organization.
Through fundraising support of the Crouse Health Foundation and board member Melvin Stith, Ph.D., the committee commissioned five local artists to contribute works of art for a mural displayed on the wall in the basement level of the hospital’s Irving building.
“The goal of the collection is to visually underscore the importance, value and contributions of our diverse workforce. This display continues our commitment to the healing power of art and has formed new and ongoing partnerships with local artists of color,” said Twiggy Eure, director of diversity and inclusion and chairwoman of diversity and inclusion committee.
Jaleel Campbell, Tasha Fain, London Ladd and husband-and-wife duo Macienne and Estaban Trotman have contributed works which show their artistic views of diversity and inclusion at Crouse. Eure says she hopes the mural will be one that will grow over time.
Solon Quinn Studios collaborated with Crouse on the project by creating a new video highlighting Crouse’s commitment to diversity and inclusion. It can be viewed at www.crouse.org/di-art.
