Before its demolition, thousands of flowers were placed in the old hallways and offices of the Massachusetts Mental Health Center to commemorate the hospital’s history and the countless patients and employees touched by the hospital during its nine decades of operation.

Anna Schuleit Bloom: 28,000 Potted Flowers Installed at the Massachusetts Mental Health Center
Incredible. "Bloom: 28,000 Potted Flowers Installed at the Massachusetts Mental Health Center... After four public days of “Bloom”, the building was closed for good and we delivered all 28,000 flowers to shelters, half-way houses, and psychiatric hospitals, which is why I didn’t want to work with cut flowers. I wanted these flowers to continue onward, after the installation."
Bloom by Anna Schuleit is an installation in the soon to be demolished Massachusetts Mental Health Center. Anna and her team filled the center with a variety of nearly 28,000 plants and invited past patients and family to reflect on their time there.
