This mural project was commissioned to create a sense of space and wonder for the patients that are in the recovery rooms adjacent to the mural.
The goals of the artwork were to eliminate the look and feel of the brick that was installed and create a warm and inviting environment for the patients of Medford Aspirus surgery recovery rooms.
Collaboration between myself as an artist, the hospital administration and the architect were vital in creating a mural that achieved the goals the hospital set out. Working with the architect allowed for the materials to be matched accordingly to the durability of the artwork.
I believe the importance of this mural was to allow for a more comfortable and peaceful space for the recovering patients at Medford. Rather than having an empty rood space, the hospital took it upon themselves to help integrate art and healing into their facility

[ manifesto ]
Art matters. Attention to the details of our environment leads to love of place, which brings us to take responsibility for the spaces where we live and work. And by extension, the people with whom we live and work. And by extension, to our local communities, our cities, our nations, and our world.
We champion the role of artists in our society. We need artists to provide us with inspiration, creativity, and imagination, and to help us envision a better world.
Architects and designers know that remarkable design can change everything. They connect the dots across disciplines, collaborating with artists to make the world a more beautiful place. They are the ultimate patrons of the arts.
In the process, design professionals promote imagination and creativity, and through their commissions, make original art integral to and accessible in people's lives.
Art in our public and private spaces helps us fight ordinary buildings, ordinary streets, ordinary cities. We celebrate the extraordinary.
The architecture of our buildings and the design of our interiors affect our happiness and well-being. Each of us deserves a daily dose of inspiration.
