The John Tracy Clinic, USC Keck Medicine, Center for Childhood Communication provides audiology and speech language pathology services to children with hearing loss from birth to adulthood. Its mission is to help children with hearing loss achieve developmental, academic and social outcomes that are commensurate with their hearing peers. The audience includes children, their parents and relatives, doctors, therapists, staff, and board of trustees.
The artwork needs to have a Los Angeles theme; have a vintage feel in acknowledgment of the surrounding buildings; have a contemporary feel in acknowledgment of the cutting edge work being achieved at this facility; as well as be interesting to children; have a sophisticated look and feel for other audiences such as donors and staff and use the institution’s color palette to brand.
Art design services included a custom menu of art selections presented digitally and complemented by a presentation of original art to support the Client’s objectives. Professional Project Management services included commissioning art and framing to be produced to exact specifications as well as meet the desired completion date; receipt of shipments and coordination of receipt of art; supervision of decal mural installation and security installation of framed art.
Nature photography with a vintage effect is placed in the staff offices that are visited by patients and their families as well as in interior corridors. A storytelling decal art mural of animals, palm trees, birds, butterflies, vintage bikes and planes is incorporated on the walls of the main corridors. The artwork is playful for a child’s imagination but also engaging for adults. Mirrors strategically placed at various heights allow children and adults to stop and consider their reflection among the three main corridors of decal art murals.

[ 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.
