According to the National Breast Cancer Foundation, one in eight women in the United States is diagnosed with breast cancer in her lifetime. For the second year in a row Regional Health is seeking artist submissions for a mural to mark National Breast Cancer Awareness Month in October. A 10-by-14-foot space in Art Alley in Rapid City has been selected for the mural.
Dustin Hirsch is the outreach liaison with Regional Health. He says public art is a good way to reach a wide audience.
