Why do we rotate our art?
Change is good for the soul, according to our Coordinator for Artistic Enhancement Betsy Blyler. “We strive to be sensitive to patients and family members who are repeatedly spending time in our hospital and waiting rooms. We endeavor to give them something new to view and contemplate when they are here,” she says.
Original art created by local community art associations hangs temporarily in patient waiting areas. “We also have the opportunity to build relationships with our regional artists as we search for different kinds of art that calm and inspire our guests,” says Betsy.
The staff in the specific departments are also involved in choosing the right art for the right space. “We work together to build excitement and give individuals a sense of ownership of the beauty of their space,” she says.
Rotating art keeps our spaces fresh. We are able to avoid having art that is decades old and tends to fade.
