Annette Ridenour, Jill Sullivan: Seven Year Journey – The Art Program at Lucile Packard Children’s Hospital
Imagine an architecturally integrated Art Program, telling the stories of the ecosystems of California with two major gardens commissioned by world famous artists, Trompe-L’oeil Mosaics on two floors creating interactive tide pools on one and the redwood forest on another. Over 40 bronze sculptures of Ambassador Animals greet you on each floor, designed to be playful and interactive. Included in this collection are blown glass dioramas, new immersive interactive technologies and artwork that takes you on a journey throughout the Stanford Campus. This collection contains only original art with 300 pieces of commissioned art and a total collection of almost 500 pieces.  Designed over a five-year period, this process engaged patients, families and an art committee that was made up of donors, architects, designers and department heads from throughout the Hospital. A strong vision was created from the art committee and a call for artists was extended to the artists of California. Come learn from Jill Sullivan, who will tell the story from the owner’s point of view and Annette Ridenour, who will present the journey from the artist and the art’s consultants point-of-view.
4:55 PM - 5:35 PM
Jessica Finch, Lisa Burgess, Anne Garrity, Marty Gregg: Best Practices in Interactive and Technology-based Art
This session will provide a comprehensive overview of the next generation of technology-based art and explore how interactive artwork can empower patients, giving a much-needed sense of control. Examples from Boston Children’s Hospital include a variety of installed and planned art types; motion-activated, sound installations, projected art, augmented reality, and new ways to use common equipment. Practical information and pros/cons will help attendees understand best practices for including interactive art in your next project. We will explore how interactive art can be an extension of patient-centered design principles, which give families the ability to adjust light levels, room temperature, and levels of privacy. We intend to expand this study and explore the impact of interactive and technology-based art as an effective means to reduce anxiety and agitation.
