THE CREATIVE SIDE OF MEDS
State-of-the-art medical facilities like MGH?s new $500M Lunder building to open in September have all the latest technology, MEP systems and equipment. But MGH also wants to serve the creative side of patients, visitors, and staff. The hospital called in Boston Art?s John Kirby and Kelly Filocco to work with 40 artists who created 302 paintings, photographs, pastels, and giclees that are being installed in lobbies, waiting areas, and patient rooms. Hanging out in their Drydock Avenue art gallery, behind John are paintings by Janis Sanders and between John and Kelly is one by Eric Aho. They both created works in oil on paper for various spots in Lunder.
THE CREATIVE SIDE OF MEDS
Eric Aho, a Saxon River, Vermont artist known for his sweeping vistas created ?plein air,? did this oil on paper for the sixth floor visitors lounge. Standing in front of it, you can almost feel the clouds rolling by and the sun hitting the hills. Other notable artist s who contributed works include: Ken Elliott, Patricia Burson, Brooke Hammerle, Michael Ireland, and Conley Harris. They were all willing to work for less than their usual fees to be part of this impressive new building.
