Top Healthcare System
Multiple locations in Chicago, IL
A top healthcare system tasked Chicago Art Source with designing, curating, framing, delivering and installing a complete art program for their multiple locations in the Chicagoland area.
All art needed to be sourced within the guidelines of evidence based design as the guiding principle, whereby art in healthcare environments is evaluated for its impact on patients and caregivers. The inspiration for art selection was drawn from the natural environment.
We also tackled a unique challenge of installing a show-stopping sculptural piece in the cavernous atrium space. The two main concepts present in this hanging sculpture - of healing and of the cycle of the seasons - are exemplified through the simple and powerful image of the spiral. The spiral is a shape that communicates continuity and connotes protection.
The results are a diverse and varied program that enhances and calms their facilities consisting of sculpture, original works, photography, limited-editions and open prints.
