PIPELINE: Jonas Wood at Children’s National Health System

RxArt is thrilled to be working with Jonas Wood on privacy curtains for the Pediatric Intensive Care Unit (PICU) at Children’s National Health System in Washington, D.C. Wood has brought this exciting project to life with his energetic, ebullient designs, allowing RxArt to produce privacy curtains for the first time. Part of his FaceTime Doodle series, each character and object is inspired by drawings made by the artist’s own children.

We are honored to bring these whimsical, bright designs by such a wonderful artist to a place that really needs them. Curtains provide the only privacy for children and their families in this crucial area. Wood’s drawings have the power to transport, to divert, and to create a new experience within a space full of uncertainty.

Children’s National Health System is one of the leading academic pediatric facilities in the nation, #1 for babies and ranked in every specialty evaluated by U.S. News & World Report. It admits 14,895 patients annually and features an acute care center with 323 beds, a Level I pediatric trauma center and a critical care transport program via ambulance, helicopter, and fixed-wing airplane.

Lead support for this project will be provided through the Eliza Moore Fund for RxArt. For more information about this project and supporting the Eliza Moore Fund for Projects, please contact Megan Skidmore at 212-260-8797 or megan_skidmore@rxart.net, or click the red “Support This Project” button.
