paintbrushesNurses’ Art Chair Auction to Benefit Students

As patient advocates, Johns Hopkins Nurses know how to take a stand— but on November 12, 2012, they took a seat instead.

At the A Seated Legacy kickoff event, students, alumni, faculty, and staff from the Johns Hopkins University School of Nursing received art supplies and a chair inscribed with the Maltese Cross, the symbol of the School’s alumni association. In 10 weeks, they will transform the everyday furniture into a work of art to be displayed at the School and later auctioned to support the Melinda Rose Fund.

“The Melinda Rose fund creates opportunities for alumni and students to come together,” explains Lindsay Dorrance, Director of Alumni Relations.  Launched by alumna Mildred Rogers ’67, the fund is named for Melinda Rose, the School’s past Director of Alumni Relations who retired in 2011.
