High on a hill a mile east of my studio is the new Children's Hospital of Pittsburgh. The colors and shapes of the buildings are breathtaking, and the art inside is rich and bright and healing. I've watched the construction for several years and couldn't believe someone actually built this playful structure in our city, much more accustomed to corporate and cloudy-sky gray. It makes me wish I could be a child again.
For more, the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette has a great story with video of how art plays an important role here. The Hospital opens next Saturday. The photographer of this picture is Lake Fong, a friend of my photographer and talented artist also.
