Brief Description

The mission of Children’s Hospital and Medical Center is to improve the life of every child –through exceptional clinical care, research, education, and advocacy. CHMC is currently building the Hubbard Center for Children, an innovative addition to the campus. We plan to work with artists and teams to commission and curate artwork throughout the building. The committee envisions a medium-to-large-scale interactive sculptural for one of the large public-facing spaces. The artwork should provide a positive distraction and visual interest for visitors of all ages using sculptural concepts and embedding elements of interactivity. Artwork should encourage play or learning with elements like changing lights, controlled sound, element(s) that move or tell a story, or other touchpoint for visitor interactivity.
