Welcome to the June issue of CODAmagazine, where we share the best design + art projects from all over the world.

Dealing with life’s issues is common to the human community. During those times, it’s comforting to be surrounded by colors, materials, and imagery that calm, uplift, soothe, and restore. This month’s magazine, Healing Art III, highlights such design + art projects.

Our magazine cover of the inpatient rooms at Sheffield Children’s Hospital in England, perfectly demonstrates the direction medical, wellness, community, and social service facilities are going when planning their interiors and exteriors. Design + art is no longer a low priority for these sectors.

In this issue, you will:

  • see a compassionate portrayal of animal care – an impressive 30-foot (9 meter) carved glass mural at Iowa State University Veterinary School
  • witness how living artwork, created with flowers and food plants, initiated conversations in Grand Rapids, MI about it’s urban spaces incorporating more green spaces
  • watch a video of an interactive light installation with graceful, rippling movements at a children’s hospital in Perth, Australia
  • experience a beautiful, restoring audio-visual program at a senior long-term facility
  • and much, much more!

We hope you will subscribe to CODAmagazine on Flipboard to receive the best design + art projects from all over the world, delivered to you, free of charge, each month. We look forward to sharing more of these incredible collaborations with you.

The magazine is published by CODAworx – the hub of the commissioned art economy. We curate this publication to showcase the most exciting commissions in interior, architectural, and public spaces – all submitted by members of our online community.
