Artist Hal Marcus Unveils Largest Mural at Transmountain Hospital

El Paso artist Hal Marcus unveiled his newest art creation Tuesday in the main lobby entrance of The Hospitals of Providence Transmountain Campus.

Marcus’ newest piece entitled, “EL PASO!” measuring 6’ x 21’, is a collection of 14 canvases that when comprised, highlight a vast collection of iconic El Paso landmarks.

The inspiration of “El Paso!” came when Hal Marcus saw pieces of art created by students from Canutillo High School. In 2016, Marcus volunteered to lecture a group of students from Canutillo High School at his exhibit at The El Paso Museum of Art. The students then created their own works of art based on pieces created by Marcus.

The students’ own art exhibit debuted at The Hospitals of Providence Transmountain Campus in June, 2017. This series of events now has come full circle with “El Paso!” debuting at the hospital.

“I believe we were all fascinated with the students’ art work,” said Nicholas Tejeda, CEO of The Hospitals of Providence Transmountain Campus. “To think their art inspired a renowned artist such as Hal is amazing. Art can play an important role in the healing process of patients. We’re excited to host this signature piece in our lobby for our patients, staff and community to enjoy. I envision people coming from near and far to see this painting. It will take some time to take it all in. It is a magnificent piece of art.”

“’EL PASO!’ is the largest and the most detailed piece that I have ever created.  It has over 50 landmarks!,” said Hal Marcus. “The new hospital, inspired me to create this piece.  When I saw the space, the light, and the wall, it triggered something, and I’m thrilled to be able to share it with the students and everyone that makes our community so special. Everyone will find something new in this painting every time they view it.”

Marcus used acrylic and mixed media to create the vibrant and colorful “EL PASO!”. The piece will remain in the lobby of The Hospitals of Providence Transmountain Campus indefinitely and is available for public viewing.

Prints are available for purchase at the hospital gift shop or at The Hal Marcus Gallery.
