Therapeutic benefits of visual arts for way-finding at Children’s Health of Dallas
Principal, Skyline Art Services
Interior Designer, Children's Medical Center
A new art program at Children’s Health plays a role in a comprehensive wayfinding system that helps patients and visitors maneuver through the 3.4-million-square-foot campus of five separate buildings. Reducing stress and anxiety for both patients and staff were primary objectives, demonstrating a therapeutic approach to the visual arts in healthcare, with a theme of "refined whimsy."
2. Describe the stakeholders’ perspectives concerning the need for an effective branding
and wayfinding initiative at a facility such as Children's Health.
3. Explain how to meet the challenge of implementing a large and complex campus-wide
4. Consider wayfinding in terms of both travel through spaces-between but as arrival and
engagements with destinations and spaces-within.
