Sunnyslope students transformed the 200-foot-long construction fence into a work of art that epresents the connection of the community and healing to John C. Lincoln North Mountain Hospital.

The lobby renovation project to create a "Pathway to Healing" was made possible by a $4 million gift from Joan and David Lincoln and Lillian Lincoln Howell. The lobby will be complete in November 2012.

Until then, the hospital entrance temporarily has moved east, and visitors and patients see an extraordinary construction fence: Kids' handprints mark the path, and images depict a rainbow, the sun, clouds, quotes about healing, the hospital, "S" Mountain, their school, flowers, cacti, families and fish.

The painting project was made possible by these sponsors: DPR Construction, WD Manor, CCRD, Orcutt Winslow, Ganado Painting, Walters and Wolf, Wilson Electric, Primera and John C. Lincoln Health Foundation.
