When the new Sid and Lois Eskenazi Hospital opens it's doors on the IUPUI campus in December, its walls will feature commissioned works from 16 contemporary artists, many of them from Indiana.
Research indicates that access to art and natural beauty play a positive role in the healing process. In addition to the selected new works, the new Eskenazi Health facilities will display paintings from the Art of Healing collection that were installed in Wishard in 1914. This includes reuniting four pieces of original work by T.C. Steele known as Four Seasons, which includes “Spring,” “Summer” and “Autumn,” as well as “Winter” from the Indiana State Museum’s collection.
The paintings were hung today marking yet another step closer to completion of the new city hospital which will open its doors to patients in December.
