To create an artwork for the hospital reflective of the surrounding landscape.
The client wanted to create a way-finding focal point in the elevator lobby of the hospital. They wanted it to reflect the landscape of the surrounding area, the prairie with wildflowers and the fields of North Dakota.
The art consultant knew what the hospital committee was looking for and sketched an idea for the artist. They wanted each of the spaces to flow from one to the other. The artist then worked up the idea into its final form, which was then presented to and approved by the committee by the art consultant.

[ 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.
