"Art and Architecture Highlights" at the new Johns Hopkins Hospital building.
The New Johns Hopkins Hospital Building
Opens May 2012
Featuring The Charlotte R. Bloomberg Children's Center and The Sheikh Zayed Tower
The new Johns Hopkins Hospital building will offer an environment like few others in the world. Over 70 artists created more than 500 original works of art for the facility.
Artists from across the country worked with a curator, in collaboration with a team of architects, to incorporate art and architecture into the new building to enhance the healing process.
The art and architecture collaboration was made possible by Michael Bloomberg, long a strong supporter of the arts in institutions and public spaces.
The Charlotte R. Bloomberg Children's Center is named in honor of the mother of Michael R. Bloomberg--philanthropist, Hopkins alumnus, and Mayor of New York City--who contributed significant resources to make the facility and this creative collaboration come to life.
The new hospital also includes the Sheikh Zayed Tower, named after the late Sheikh Zayed bin Sultan Al Nahyan, founder and first president of the United Arab Emirates.
