* In 2001, The Phipps and Hudson Hospital embarked on an innovative collaboration to exhibit original work by regional artists throughout the hospital and specialty clinics. At any given time, work by approximately 20 artists is on temporary display in waiting areas, conference rooms, patient and staff corridors, procedure rooms, and patient rooms.

In 2006, The Phipps expanded its outreach exhibition program to Croixdale, a senior housing center in Bayport, Minnesota. Work is displayed in the most public areas of this new facility on a rotating basis.

In 2013, The Phipps expanded its outreach exhibition program to Westfields Hospital in New Richmond, Wisconsin. Also on a rotating basis, work is displayed in waiting areas, patient and staff corridors, and other public spaces.

In 2016, The Phipps once again expanded its outreach exhibition program to Woodland Hill. Also on a rotating basis, work is displayed in two public locations, along main corridors on the first and second floors.

** NOTE: Artists may be contacted via e-mail in late August or early September with a request for more information, including additional images of work (up to 20 total), a resume/bio, and an artist statement. Applicants are encouraged to look for this email and be prepared to respond within three days to ensure their work receives full consideration.
