AVAF’s vibrant artwork “Antes Vulgar Agora Fino” was installed at the cafeteria of The Special Children’s Center, Lakewood, NJ on October 2014. The Special Children’s Center focuses on offering round-the-clock, year-round respite services to children with disabilities and life limiting conditions. They offer individual programs so that every child may rise beyond challenges and lead a fuller, more productive life.
The exuberant colors and patterns expand the limits imposed by the walls, altering the entire environment. The viewer becomes an active participant as one absorbs the positive energy that surrounds them. The converted cafeteria provides patients with a space that engages their intellect and encourages social interactions and arouses creativity. This project was made possible through the generosity of RxArt board member Glori Cohen.
RxArt is delighted to collaborate with AVAF on a project that supports its mission of transforming pediatric hospital facilities into comforting and engaging spaces through site specific installations by contemporary artists.
