Park’s commissioned work unveiled at new Johns Hopkins hospital center
Work by Maria Park, assistant professor of art, is featured in the entrance lobby of the new Sheikh Zayed Tower at Johns Hopkins Hospital in Baltimore, Maryland. Park's site-specific commission CN-JH1 is one of three works Park created for this building and the new Charlotte R. Bloomberg Children's Center as part of an "Art + Architecture" initiative curated by Nancy Rosen. This initiative encompasses more than 500 pieces of art by over 70 artists. Other artists with work in the project include Polly Apfelbaum, Spencer Finch, and Byron Kim. The dedication ceremony of the new building was held in mid-April, and the building will open to the public on May 1, 2012.
