“There’s No Place to Hide” is a 39 x 68 inch Digital Print on Canvas (edition number 2 of 3) chosen by Tom Huck, Art Curator of University Hospitals in Cleveland to reside at a nurse’s station alcove in the Angie Fowler Adolescent & Young Adult Cancer Institute at Rainbow Babies and Children’s Hospital.
The architects Stanley Beaman & Sears goals for the Angie Fowler Adolescent & Young Adult Cancer Institute, was to create a design that would improve the emotional wellbeing of the patients with spaces that are uplifting and life affirming. Curator Tom Huck, was tasked with installing artwork that would reinforce the design goals. A large wall space within a nurse’s station alcove was a prime location to place a large format work of art to further complement these goals.
I’m disabled with a spine disease and I’m interested in bringing public awareness to the healing arts.The work “There’s No Place to Hide” features one of my whimsies hidden in a grid of circles and undulating sweeps of color. My whimsies are creatures of my imagination, free of pain and unencumbered from gravity and able to move through the world without constriction. If you look at the work you might find the whimsy, but to help out, the whimsy hidden in it is shown here (last image).

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.
