Surface Magazine – FIGS Founder Heather Hasson Joins RxART Board

Surface Magazine — January 16, 2020

Straphangers of the New York City subway are likely familiar with FIGS, the pioneering startup that’s on a mission to make medical scrubs cool and accessible. The venture, founded by Heather Hasson, has seen propitious growth since its 2013 inception, largely credited to below-ground exposure and millenial-friendly social media campaigns. Hasson, a millenial herself, now joins the board of RxART, a small nonprofit that partners with leading contemporary artists to create site-specific artworks and installations for children’s hospitals around the country. Her first collaboration is with Urs Fischer, who will dream up playfully patterned hospital-grade pajamas for youngsters at Children’s Hospital Los Angeles.
