Acadia Hospital celebrated its 20th anniversary on Thursday. To mark the occasion, the hospital unveiled a brand new sculpture on the lawn of the facility.It was designed by a local artist as part of the Schoodic international sculpture symposium.A donation made it possible for Acadia to acquire the piece.The sculptor says he hopes that the design provides inspiration for those visiting the hospital.”That means I dared to do a sculpture that exudes hope, and not false hope. That liberates me to do a lot more than I could ever want,” says Andreas Van Huene. Acadia Hospital is also promoting Mental Health Awareness Week.To take an anonymous mental health screening visit acadiahospital.org.
