We are creating a home for The Walking Gallery of Healthcare called "Salt and Pepper Studios: The home of The Walking Gallery." We dedicated the building to the mission of The Walking Gallery on May 19, 2016. We host artists in residence to paint additional jackets and offer a place of respite for recovering patients. The building is still being completed and we do need additional funds to complete repairs. With the money raised thus far we repaired or replaced all the plumbing. We put in a forced air heating system. We painted the entire interior. We built a large sandbox under the deck. We put in a gravel parking lot behind the building. We built a handicap ramp to the front entrance.
We thank everyone who supports this movement and especially those who donate in memory of those members we have lost: Jess Jacobs and Jerry Matczak. Both Jess and Jerry have rooms named in their honor in the building. We also have a room named in honor of Aaron Richardson, friend of the Walking Gallery. We thank those who spread the word on social media. We thank those who donate funds that defray the costs of this project. Most of all, we thank those brave walkers and artists who join us and help spread these stories all over the world.
