Japanese artist Takashi Murakami decided to go to Washington D.C.’s Children’s National Hospital to decorate a room with his trademarked floral motif.
Murakami posted pictures of the room to Instagram, showcasing the iconic styles decorating the doors, the walls as well as the room’s PET/CT scanner. He had this to say: “My Flower works were installed to wrap a CT/PET scanner, and the wallpaper at the Children’s National Hospital in Washington, DC,” he added. “Thank you to the RxArt team for the arrangements.” The project was organized by RxArt & Gagosian.
The Japanese artist’s move definitely serves its intended purpose brightening up the room where CT & PET scans are used to identify joint/bone issues in addition to locating illnesses such as heard disease and cancer. D.C.’s Children’s National Hospital is one of the top ten children’s hospitals in the entire country. In 2019 the hospital was responsible for the treatment of over 219,000 kids from both the U.S. as well as various other nations.
This particular project is his latest with his previous project being the donation of a piece of art to Grand Palais for its treasure hunt back in the middle of October.
