American Cancer Society – Central & Southern Illinois is launching a public art campaign across the St Louis Metro Area and will have some representation here in the Metro East in 4 locations.

The 42 doors symbolize the 42 guest suites available at the renovated Hope Lodge (currently under construction in the Central West End in St Louis!) The doorways will be art installations (similar to the St Louis anniversary cakes back in 2014) decorated by local artists. Each door will be unique as is each patient’s journey to wellness. Each door will also have a plaque that tells a little bit about the campaign and drives people to the website to vote on their favorite one.

The door with the most votes will be installed as art in the new Hope Lodge!

You can learn more about the campaign and the new Hope Lodge at HopeisHome.org
