Kaiser Permanente, Mission Bay Medical Offices, San Francisco, CA

Monarch, 2015, by Cliff Garten Studio, Kaiser Permanente, Mission Bay

Chandra Cerrito Art Advisors developed a comprehensive art program for a nine-story new construction medical office building in the Mission Bay district of San Francisco, including interior art and public art. We provided over 80 new artworks and strategically re-located 50 existing artworks throughout the building, including reception areas, pharmacy, lobby spaces, patient rooms, and corridors. Feature artworks include eight large-scale architecturally-integrated super graphic images commissioned by celebrated local plein-air painter Anthony Holdsworth. Each image depicts a different San Francisco neighborhood and is prominently placed in each floor's main reception area, distinguishing the floors and enhancing way-finding within the building. Other artworks provide a diverse range of media, including paintings, wall sculptures, photography, original works on paper, limited edition prints, and custom designed PVC-free wall decals for the pediatrics department. To meet the city's public art requirement, award-winning artist Cliff Garten was commissioned to create a monumental site-specific stainless steel and LED sculpture installed in the center of a public park adjacent to the building. The entire collection responds to the hospital's healing environment and to the Client's request to incorporate artists representing local communities it serves as well as artworks that reflect the city's vibrant multicultural character.
