Well placed, thoughtfully curated, and mindfully created art invokes the heart of a healing environment, bringing respite and ease to patients, visitors, and staff.
Art in Health Care
As health care facilities are being redesigned to minimize the historic, institutional atmosphere, art plays an integral part in promoting comfort, ease, and well-being.
We collaborate with facilities managers, architects, and designers to complement the design and build a theme that exemplifies the administration philosophy throughout the entire facility.
We provide all-encompassing services from conception to completion. After we determine locations for the artwork we work within the established budget.
We recommend qualified artists, commission and acquire the works of art, design custom framing for paintings and prints, coordinate the delivery and installation, and assist with press releases and community marketing.
All health care standards are followed to ensure that we meet building, safety, fire, and OSPHD requirements.
Torrance Memorial Medical Center
For twenty-two years, we've been their art consulting firm. The Lundquist Tower opened October 2014 and includes nearly 400 works of art, many of which are site-specific. Our art committee included administrators, staff, and department input to build a program that reflects their connection to the community.
Kaiser Permanente, South Bay
A multi-phased project, we are involved with remodeling existing space as well as providing artwork for a new Medical Office Building and Replacement Hospital. One phase included teaching an art outreach program to the Boys and Girls Club of the South Bay, and their 50 skateboards are on display in a key linking corridor.
Kaiser Permanente, Anaheim
This multi-phased project includes works in the Medical Office Building, Hospital Support Building, and Radiation Oncology. Of the more than 30 original, site-specific works, many fill 15' waiting room niches in a variety of media. Three large steel and resin sculptures are suspended at the main entrance.
Kaiser Permanente, Cerritos
It is infrequent when our two main specialties align into one project–public art and health care. Because the city of Cerritos has an Art in Public Places Program, we provided both the exterior sculpture and the interior art program. The corten steel and resin sculpture carries inside with a detail work as you enter the lobby.
Todd Cancer Pavilion, Long Beach
Original and limited edition artwork is featured in reception, waiting areas, corridors, treatment areas, and exam rooms. We worked with the architect, executive director, and a dynamic, donor-driven art committee to put together this hopeful and nature-oriented art program of more than 100 works.
Kaiser Permanente, Downey
Because this site was an old aircraft factory, the city required the art program to include historical references. Details of the 500 works include a cowling reception desk in the ED, a large aluminum work in the lobby, a city map, abstracted wall sculptures of the earth from space, and historical photographs printed on metal.
