Of course hospitals aren’t exactly the most pleasant places on Earth, especially beyond the doors of testing rooms where no one is allowed to accompany patients, not even the youngest. To make these places slightly less hostile for children, non-profit american organization RxArt has decided to promote the installation of some of Jeff Koons’ most famous artworks in the scan rooms of the Advocate Hope Children’s Hospital in Oak Lawn, Illinois. Going on through its leading aim of installing contemporary artworks in hospitals, the RxArt organization has dedicated its energies to the section of pediatric radiology, utterly wrapping scanner rooms and machines (painted in blue) in images of some of Koons’ most iconic works, from the Hanging Heart from the Celebration series to the Ballon Dog, from Monkeys to Donkey. That’s how scanner rooms have been transformed into brighter and more relaxing places in order to make those infinite minutes inside the “tube” seem as short as possible.
