Jeff Koons for RxArt at Advocate Hope Children’s Hospital

RxArt tries to make the experience of going to the hospital more bearable by adding contemporary art to hospitals – and Jeff Koons has kindly donated his time and art to make the Advocate Hope Children’s Hospital more kid-friendly. During a CT scan, kids are asked not to move or fidget as they’re shoved into a cavernous scanner that makes all sorts of intimidating noises. Koon’s Balloon Dog and Hanging Heart pieces decorate the walls of the hospital’s CT scan room, in the hopes of making the experience more bearable.
