Summary

RxArt plans to install a carefully curated series of original drawings by contemporary artists in a highly visible well-trafficked area of Gouverneur Hospital to be placed in a pediatric waiting room.

What is the issue, problem, or challenge?

The project advances RxArt’s mission to identify facilities in which the installation of art could make a real and lasting impact on the well-being of patients and attending staff, and is specifically conceived to ease the stress of pediatric patients waiting to be seen by medical staff. Gouverneur is the largest freestanding ambulatory clinic in New York, serving approximately 50,000 patients per year, and an additional 300,000 at their main campus and satellite locations.

How will this project solve this problem?

Three artworks have been selected for the space at Gouverneur Hospital. The artworks will be framed and installed with informational plaques by November 2009. Copies of RxArt's newest coloring book will also be distributed to the pediatric unit.

Potential Long Term Impact

The artwork is on long-term loan with no intention of it being removed. The project will engage a demographically diverse new audience daily by exhibiting art in a nontraditional venues that nearly all of us will visit at some point in our lives.
