U.S.A. Children's and Women's Hospital Project
January 2005


 

The Hospital received the third year of a five year $250.000. pledge from Food World & the Senior Bowl, to fund the recent renovation of the Hospitals lobby. Children’s & Women’s is one of fewer than 10 freestanding hospitals in the country providing care exclusively to children and women. Tag Architects and Alice Cutright, designed the renovation of the entrance as well as many other depts. in the hospital. With a Modern feel, showing a lot of glass at the entrance and with watery cool colors throughout, Alice wanted to introduce color into the entrance with the portraits hung on either side of the Hospital logo. Ten (10) women’s portrait paintings were created by artist Bancroft Brabner of different ages in women’s lives, representing those who come to the hospital for care. The artist research for the subjects was to look for those individuals whose faces showed a winning and vibrant attitude. Their eyes and faces are full of promise, wisdom, joy, good health, and happy lives. They represent all women who take care of themselves. Square, 18” Plexiglas panels were cut and beveled and painted directly on with acrylic paint and then sealed.
