New Permanent Healing Arts Sculpture at Hudson Hospital & Clinic
A new permanent Healing Arts sculpture will be installed on the rooftop of Hudson Hospital & Clinic’s medical office building on Tuesday, September 29. The community is invited to stop by and see this piece being installed between 9:00 and 10:00 a.m. Light refreshments will be served.
The sculpture, by regional artist Ben Janssens, depicts a waterfall scene and was carefully selected to fit with the Hudson Hospital healing environment and healing arts philosophy. Janssens, originally from Edmonton, Canada, currently resides in Minneapolis. He is a metal fabricator and architectural sign maker. Much of his work can be seen through public art installations and marquees around the Twin Cities.
Hudson Hospital & Clinic sponsors an Employee giving campaign, Sharing At Work, where staff can generously donate towards the Healing Arts Fund through the Hudson Hospital Foundation. This program is set in place to enhance the campus by adding permanent artwork throughout. Janssens sculpture was commissioned for Hudson Hospital & Clinic through this fund.
The Healing Arts Program at Hudson Hospital & Clinic began in 2001 through a collaboration with The Phipps Center for the Arts. Work by local and regional artists is on view throughout the campus and exhibits rotate quarterly.
Hudson Hospital & Clinic is located 15 miles east of St. Paul. East on I-94, Take Exit 2, Carmichael Road, go right and immediately merge into the left land. Left onto Stageline Road, enter at main entrance roundabout.
