Children's Hospital & Clinics of Minnesota
We are honored to be participating in Children's Hopsital & Clinics of Minnesota Arts & Healing Urban Renewal Project. Children’s is in the middle of the most ambitious redevelopment in its history, investing more than $300 million to renovate and expand facilities to improve patient care. With this redevelopment comes an opportunity to use architecture, landscaping, science, and art in a way that will transform the health care experience for patients and families. At the same time, this arts and healing initiative will enhance the neighborhoods that Children’s is a part of, creating healing spaces that will be assets to the community.
Jim's work will provide positive distractions, educational fun, and relief from pain by bringing beauty and delight to patients and families at a critical time in their lives. His work will be featured on the second floor in surgical waiting exam rooms and pre-op and post-op recovery rooms in the Pediatric Surgery Center. Another group will be on the third floor in private patient rooms, acting as a window to the world for families who can spend weeks with infants in the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit that are
premature and/or need surgery.
