RxART is proud to announce the completion of an installation by Nicolas Party in a 207-foot-long corridor at Children’s Hospital Los Angeles (CHLA). RxART Founder and President, Diane Brown, met with hospital leadership in 2015 and identified the corridor as an important area within CHLA in need of an uplifting transformation. After visiting the site nearly three years ago, Party dedicated much of his time at the beginning of the pandemic lockdown to executing his colourful, narrative landscape that now provides a calming pathway for the patients to be guided through.

“It has been a privilege to think about how an artwork can make a difference in the context of a children’s hospital,” Nicolas Party said. “The colourful forest I painted for this long corridor will hopefully do a little to make the experience a bit more tolerable. Working on the project in such a charged environment has been challenging because artists usually work in spaces fully devoted to host art. The use of the corridor makes the creation of artwork difficult and has to be handled with care and respect, always keeping in mind who will be seeing the work every day - hospital staff and young patients.”
