The artist was commissioned to design and create artwork for the main lobby of the Imbert Cancer Center. The wall-mounted hand-blown glass sculptural composition is approximately 30'W x 7'H with varying depth. It is a flock of migratory birds that symbolizes the journey that patients and caregivers travel to transition from sickness into health or to the next stage in life.
The client wanted to incorporate artwork into the main lobby of the cancer center that would evoke a sense of peace for the caregivers and for the patients that are fighting the battle with cancer. They wanted a dynamic art piece that integrated well with the interior space and was aesthetically pleasing while also bringing meaning to the space. Additionally, it was important that the piece speak to the attributes of the surrounding coastal region.
The artist worked closely with the art consultant through each stage of the process from concept through design work to installation logistics. Throughout the project, the artist worked to incorporate client feedback while still maintaining artistic vision & the integrity of the design.

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.
