|Patients and visitors can view and learn about the creative and|
therapeutic artwork that rotates throughout Building 10 in
greater detail by scheduling a walking tour with
volunteer Louisa Howard, right.
As you walk down nearly every hallway of the Clinical Center's Hatfield building, you can admire artwork in the form of landscapes, photography, sculptures and much more. To help patients, their families and staff view the nearly 130 pieces of artwork on display, the Clinical Center Fine Arts Program now offers personalized tours of the artwork. To schedule a tour, call 301-435-5576.
The guided tour is provided by Louisa Howard, a NIH post baccalaureate intramural research training awardee who is a volunteer in the Fine Arts Program. The program, which began in 1984, has more than 2,000 pieces in its collection and is made possible in part through monetary and artwork donations from artists, staff, visitors and patients.
Also available is a self-guided walking tour. A brochure of the artwork on display is available at the north entrance hospitality desk, the reception desk near the P1 garage and the patient library on the 7th floor of the Clinical Center in addition to The Children's Inn at NIH and the Edmond J. Safra Family Lodge.
