Swedish Medical Center is looking for children’s or young adults’ artwork to feature in its new Issaquah campus.

Swedish is building a new medical center in the Issaquah Highlands. The campus is being developed in two stages. The first stage is the opening of a medical office building and outpatient center in July. Stage two is the hospital, which opens in November.

Hospital officials want to feature digital images of artwork or photos by children or young adults who live on the Eastside (open to children and young adults ages 5 to 18). The digital images selected will be turned into long-lasting pieces of art to showcase in the new Swedish facility.

“Art plays an important role in creating a positive, welcoming and healing environment,” said Janette Turner, a member of Swedish’s Art Committee. “When deciding on what works of art to display in the new Swedish Medical Center/Issaquah, we knew we wanted to feature local artwork. And, what better pieces to include in the facility than works by children who live the in area.”

Digital images of artwork must be submitted for consideration by 11:59 p.m. April 11. The artwork and an accompanying release form must be emailed to
