For patients and staff, the drive in to the Mays Cancer Center just got a bit more inspirational with the recent installation of the Wings of Hope – Hands of Healing sculpture in the circle at the main entrance to the complex.
The striking work of art was donated by The Jack and Valerie Guenther Foundation.
Jack and Valerie Guenther are longtime supporters and major donors to the Mays Cancer Center. Mr. Guenther was the attorney who drafted the articles of incorporation for the cancer center back in 1974, and the Urschel Tower is named in honor of Mrs. Guenther’s parents, Charles and Betty Urschel.
The piece was designed and created by renowned Corpus Christi wildlife artist Kent Ullberg.
“I wanted to honor the whole medical profession with five feet Healing Hands in bronze, out of which emerges the 15-foot tall sparkling Wings of Hope in polished stainless steel that forms a ‘V’ for victory over cancer,“ Ullberg said.
A formal dedication ceremony will be scheduled this fall.
