PIPELINE: Keith Haring Foundation at NYC Health + Hospitals/Harlem

RxArt is proud to be working with the Keith Haring Foundation on a project for the Pediatric Emergency Department at NYC Health + Hospitals/Harlem. A detailed and mesmerizing design by the late artist has been provided by The Haring Foundation and will be produced as a wall covering for the waiting area. This environment is the first impression for incoming patients and their families, and a space that needs to provide a positive distraction for them during what can often be a stressful situation. Haring’s cheerful and comical imagery will offer a welcoming reception as they wait to receive critical care.

The Department of Pediatric Emergency Medicine at NYC Health + Hospitals/Harlem provides outstanding emergency care for ill and injured infants, children and adolescents, 24 hours a day, seven days a week. In 2017, the department served 16,500 pediatric patients.

Every RxArt project is made possible at no cost to our partner hospital. For more information on this project and how to support it, contact Megan Skidmore at 212-260-8797 or megan_skidmore@rxart.net or click the red “Support This Project” button.
