Billings Clinic Unveils Art Exhibit

Posted: Updated:
 It's an art project that took more than one year to create. On Monday, hard work and dedication paid off as the 12 paintings were unveiled at Billings Clinic.

The Billings Clinic Foundation invited the public to attend Tuesday's dedication ceremony of the art exhibit. The 12 paintings of tipis were commissioned and donated by the Harold and Patricia Korell Foundation. Local artist and creator, Kira Fercho, said seeing her work unveiled was a dream come true. "I just don't think things happen by chance. It was meant to be. I was very honored that I got to be that agent who got to produce them. It's cool. It's just very cool," Fercho said.

"It's just a great day for Billings Clinic and for the patients we serve. Because every time they walk through these doors these beautiful paintings will help calm and provide a healing environment," Billings Clinic Foundation President, Jim Duncan said.

Duncan said these pieces provide a tribute to a significant piece of our state's heritage.
