Emory Woman's Club members (left to right) Elizabeth Joyner, Berta Laney, wife of former Emory President James T. Laney, Becky Hunter and Ruth Simmons look over a painting of irises that the group created as part of their work with the Foundation for Hospital Art. The iris mural and another one depicting cranes will be placed in a Seoul, South Korea, hospital with help from the Laneys and a U.S. Army officer stationed in South Korea who is the son of the foundation's president, John Feight. The four-by-four foot murals are made up of six panels of stretched canvas which were color-keyed and then painted by Woman's Club volunteers.
