Students from Shacklette Elementary School will present a special gift to children receiving treatment at Frazier Rehab Institute, part of KentuckyOne Health.  The students created art to be displayed on the eighth floor, the pediatric care area of the facility, and will be joined by pediatric patients to install the art throughout the floor.
 
Shacklette teacher Brianna Moss received a $300 grant from the Jewish Hospital & St. Mary’s Foundation to purchase supplies for her students to create the artwork. The school does not have a formal art program. The children’s work will be displayed as part of the Frazier Rehab Institute’s Healing Art program inspired by Louisville artist and former patient Billy Hertz.
 
Hertz spearheaded the effort to create art galleries with works from predominantly local artists throughout floors one, seven, eight and 10. The galleries were dedicated last fall.
