This northwest Wisconsin hospital expanded its hospital in 2019 and was seeking a distinct series of art glass panels to greet patients, staff and families in their reception area lobby. Collaborating with an art consultant from Minneapolis, MN, I successfully designed, developed and installed four original art glass multi-panel murals depicting the unique regional beauty of Wisconsin's four seasons.
The art design consultant and I worked to develop the perfect art for the distinct four niche areas that were being built in the lobby. The art needed to fill the openings with glass and laser cut metal and we collaborated with the construction and electrical team building the hospital addition.
Numerous drawings were developed to integrate of art glass concepts into architectural plans. Collaboration included working with hospital design team in conjunction with Hovde Dorsey Art Design consultants. Electronic submission of files and one site visit provided the successful integration of concept to installation.

[ 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.
