RxArt is working with Sam Falls, Urs Fischer and Laura Owens at Cedars-Sinai’s Maxine Dunitz Children’s Health Center in Los Angeles, CA to transform the pediatric inpatient unit. Original designs by each artist are being installed on the ceilings of nearly 20 rooms where hospitalized children spend the majority of their time. Rather than being surrounded by a completely sterile environment, the vibrant artwork crowning the rooms will captivate the patients’ imaginations and provide healthy distractions.

RxArt is grateful for the generous lead support of this project from Peri Arenas, Florence and Serge Azria, Mara Buxbaum, Gagosian, Kiehl’s Since 1851, the Jerry & Terri Kohl Family Foundation, the McCrea Foundation, Maurice Marciano, Nathalie Marciano, Nordstrom, the Saban Family Foundation and the William E. Weiss Foundation. Our additional thanks to the RxArt Advisory Board as well as these friends and advocates: Olivia Marciano, Jamie Goldblatt, Aimee Gabbard and Lauren Jack. RxArt is grateful to partner with Flavor Paper in producing this project.
