Healthcare Environments + Kiln-Glass

June 26, 2018

Art aids the healing process, inspires well-being, and can deeply influence one’s experience in nearly any environment. For these reasons, art plays a crucial role in hospitals and care centers around the world. Kiln-glass artworks are proving to be an exciting option for these centers, offering a multitude of benefits.

Not only is kiln-glass beautiful, nearly infinite in color and design capabilities, but it is strong. It can be placed indoors or out, is easy to maintain, and accommodates 100+ year requirements. Its ability to be laminated means it passes safety testing. And its ability to be scaled makes it appropriate for large-scale applications, as well as smaller components produced in the hundreds – “donor wall” applications for example.

Bullseye Studio has been fortunate to fabricate kiln-glass artworks for the Charles A. Sammons (Baylor) Cancer Center in Dallas, TX, Oregon Health & Science University in Portland, OR, Utah State University’s Clinical Services in Logan, UT, and be included in the Fine Art collection at Montefiore Medical Center in the Bronx. The artwork featured above is one such example: Our Celestial Bodies is the second of a two-part project designed by artist Laurel Porcari for the primary entrance lobby of the Jack D. Weiler Hospital located on the Einstein Campus of Montefiore.

If your healthcare organization needs donor recognition components, or you are in need of solutions that will make a lasting inspirational statement, contact Bullseye Studio.
