Intentionally selected artwork greets visitors at Nemours Children’s Hospital Orlando and accompanies them throughout their hospital journey creating a participatory sense of discovery that appeals to the childlike wonder in people of all ages. Nemours Art Program supports the facility design theme: A Hospital in a Garden…and A Garden in a Hospital.
Visitors young and old are encouraged to experience the nature setting both indoors and out by exploring the hospital at their own place in search of little garden friends, Nemours Caring Critters: Lexi Ladybug, Brady Bird, Benjamin Bunny, Faith Frog and Bailey Butterfly.
On a journey through the facility, guests visually experience stages of Support, Beginnings, Growth, Nurture, Bloom, Flourish and Shine found in both the gardens and the hospital. Accent color inspired art helps delineate the uniqueness of each floor.
