Tohono Chul Park is accepting artist entries through Feb. 4 for "Art That Heals," an exhibition of artwork that has a healing purpose.

Original artwork in all media is welcome, a release said. Possibilities include mandalas, icons, shrines or other images used for mediation, prayer or healing; subjects dealing with prayer or intercessions to saints; artwork made in response to grief or to help the maker deal with a spiritual or psychological problem; and artwork that engenders or represents hope and healing.

"The exhibit's aim is to explore how art images can be powerful objects that positively influence our spirits," it continued.

Icons and mandalas can be meditative aids, and art activities frequently are used in therapeutic settings to provide patients with a means of self-expression and healing. "Art-making can be cathartic, helping individuals restore balance and health in their lives after experiencing loss, illness or suffering," the release said.

Artists who wish to create new work for the Art That Heals exhibit may submit sketches and a narrative proposal outlining their ideas. Completed works may be submitted in slide, photo, or digital media/CD format. Submissions should include size, medium and an accompanying statement about each piece and its relevance to the theme. No fee is required for submissions. Each artist may submit up to six pieces for consideration.

Submissions may be mailed with a self-addressed stamped envelope to Peggy Hazard, assistant exhibit curator, at Tohono Chul Park, 7366 N. Paseo del Norte, Tucson, 85704, e-mail at peggyhazard@tohonochulpark.org, or call 520-742-6455, extension 217.

The Marana capital improvements improvements are expected to take years to complete as Marana finds the best plan of action to complete the projects and fund the improvements. Do you think this is a good idea?

The town of Marana is looking at ways to do capital improvements to the oldest neighborhoods in Marana. Over the next few months the town will survey older neighborhoods and see what amenities they need and form a plan to make sure neighborhoods have paved roads, sidewalks, adequate drainage, lighting and even pocket parks. “We want to make sure that every neighborhood has a base standard for infrastructure,” said Marana Town Manager Gilbert Davidson. The improvements are expected to take years to complete as Marana finds the best plan of action to complete the projects and fund the improvements. Do you think this is a good idea?

How do you feel about a potential memorial art project to honor our community’s bravest men and women?

During the Jan. 20 town council meeting, a vote was unanimously passed to look into the feasibility of a “Memorial Public Art Project,” at the request of Oro Valley resident Dick Eggerding to potentially be placed somewhere in the town to honor military veterans and first responders. Though no concrete plans were then ready to act on, there was a show of overwhelming support for such project from residents and staff alike during the council meeting. In an effort to poll to community at-large, The Explorer would like to know how you feel about a potential memorial art project to honor our community’s bravest men and women.
