Portland Hospital – The Day Care Unit – Rooms

Portland Hospital – The Day Care Unit – Rooms

Art Contact began the new year, in continued collaboration with Portland Hospital, as they continue with developments within the hospital. Art Contact were selected to commission a series of bespoke artworks for the Day Case Unit, more specifically for the bedrooms allocated to young people. With that in mind, Art Contact looked a developing the distinctive style established within the hospital and adapting it to this new location.

During the collaboration Portland Hospital outlined an interest in music, and the positive healing qualities it can have, especially in young people. Art Contact developed this idea and commissioned a digital artist to produce a series of images which depicted children playing and interacting with instruments or dancing to music. In line with the exciting art collection within the hospital, the artworks were printed onto high quality, easy to maintain acrylic panels and the artist contextualized the artworks, to include London landmarks.
