This project was to build a sculpture that would depict a family of 4 of large scale 10' for the court yard in the hospital between the patient rooms and parking garage plus be viewed from the glass exterior wall and hall area out side the meeting rooms.


The goal of the sculpture was to be up lifting for the patients and be viewable from all the window on the 2 and 3 floor ! I call it a healing art with a powerful healing message. The Director of the hospital liked it even more than he thought I would! Job well done.


There was a designer out of Chicago on site and a designer out of Oklahoma city building operation person and the hospital director we all came together to view my past work gave me in site as to what they were looking for. At that point went back to the studio and develop three different concept and e-mail them to all party it came down to what the director wanted and my design sold him and a deposit was made and production was under way.

Additional Information

The project went very smoothly in all aspects from the design development, funding, production delivery and installation!
