Description:  The Hubert H. Humphrey Comprehensive Health Center is a full service hospital accommodating families and children, geriatrics, and a women’s clinic. The Center, built in 1976, was renovated in 2010 to update the first and second floor reception areas, the cafeteria and the urgent care center. As part of this project, the Center’s atrium, which is above the main entrance’s receptionk, was refurbished. Artists George Peters and Melanie Walker designed a lively and colorful polycarbonate suspended sculpture for this new large and open atrium. Their sculpture is composed of colorful geometric and asymmetric shapes that move and sway in the air.

About the Artist: Airworks Studio, Inc., George Peters and Melanie Walker, have worked on a wide range of projects since they began collaborating in 1995. The artists bring their individual visions and histories together to create large scale commissions that enliven and activate the environment in both interior and exterior spaces. Peters has 25 years experience in making kites, banners and other wind-related sculptures. His sculptural and installation works reflect his fascination with the air as a medium. Walker, a self-described visual satirist, investigates family, home, city and place through various mediums. She credits light, transparency and celebration as the inspiration for her artworks.
