The Nemours Children’s Hospital specializes in pediatric care in central Florida. The facility is designed with families in mind providing all levels of care from minor to complex medical conditions. The hospital has colorful commissioned artwork throughout the facility.
A large wall outside of the hospital auditorium was selected for a multi-layered acrylic artwork. The bright sailboats and spinnakers abstractly reflected in water can be viewed on both entry levels to the auditorium and the staircase aside the artwork. Families & staff can view educational training films, along with patient entertainment in the auditorium, while at the hospital. The theme of the artwork is families sailing on water, with vibrant color sails boats and spinnakers.
Distinctive Art Source facilitated the initial visit to the hospital during early construction. I met with the architect and hospital personnel to attain a sense of their vision for the facility artwork.

[ 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.
