Art and Health

Late last year I was invited to develop a concept design for an area of the new Gold Coast University Hospital, currently under construction. I was thrilled at the opportunity of being involved in the Art Program. Some objectives of the integrated artwork program include creating a calming environment for visitors and patients. At the same time creating a conducive environment in which to work, while exploring relationships between art and science and art and health. Artists involved in developing schematic designs for the Gold Coast University Hospital include Stephen Short, Carly Scoufos, Daniel Templeman, Glenda Orr, Sherrie Knipe and myself. You can see schematic designs and details in the Art Program Update.
