RxArt is proud to be working with Walead Beshty on his site-specific installation for the Center for Advanced Care (CAC) at Advocate Illinois Masonic Medical Center (AIMMC) in Chicago. Beshty’s work has been installed in the main lobby of the hospital and consists of four 15 x 6 foot vibrantly colored light boxes, inspired by the colors of the most frequently prescribed medications.

The installation is visible from both inside and outside the hospital, illuminating both the environment of this major Chicago hospital and the lives of patients, families, hospital staff, and visitors who will encounter it.  AIMMC, a Top 100 U.S. Hospital, is a major urban teaching hospital and trauma center recognized as a leader in healthcare equality by the Human Rights Campaign.

RxArt is grateful for generous lead support from the David C. and Sarajean Ruttenberg Arts Foundation, IIC Radiology Group, Radiology Partners, Elizabeth and Conrad von Peterffy and Pamella and Al Capitanini.
