Installation in patient rooms, treatment rooms and waiting areas of RU’s inpatient department served as RxART’s inaugural project. We placed works, including two site-specific wall drawings, in patient rooms and throughout the hallways and patient waiting areas. Works of art were also placed in several treatment rooms. Works installed include pieces by: Matthew Ritchie, Helen Levitt, Mel Bochner, Joel Meyerowitz, Lynn Davis.
Patient satisfaction surveys were circulated and the response has continued to be overwhelmingly positive. The addition of works of art to an otherwise empty corridor has also made an enormous difference to the professional staff.
