Dennis Sparks, Manager at Hodges-Josberger Funeral Home, has developed a relationship with the local Marco Island artists in displaying their art to help comfort families in their time of need. The art has helped to create a peaceful gathering place for families wishing to have a reception following services at the funeral home. Artists Carolyn Burger, Karen Swanker, Jo-Ann Sanborn and Betty Newman have artwork displayed in the funeral home. All artists are members of the Marco Island Center for the Arts. All of the art displayed is available for purchase through the local artist.
