    Bloom: 28,000 Potted Flowers Installed at the Massachusetts Mental Health Center, In 2003 a building housing the Massachusetts Mental Health Center (MMHC) was slated for demolition. Artist Anna Schuleit was commissioned & after an initial tour she was struck not with what she saw but with what she didn’t see: the presence of life and color. Schuleit executed a massive public art installation called Bloom. This Hall is the chrysanthemum.

BLOOM: After a century, an asylum building was to be demolished. Anna Schuleit was struck, not by what she saw in it, but what she didn’t see: life and color. With 80 volunteers, she filled the rooms and halls with 28,000 living flowers and vistas of grass, which flourished for 4 days and then went to people at hospitals and shelters. This link has high-res photos, how the project was done, and words by visitors who had, lived, worked, been confined, experienced healing in those spaces.

Anna Schuleit - Installation at Mental Health Center, Massachusetts.

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."

"Meaning Minus Truth Conditions' is an art installation created by Thomas Ehgartner.

The poor woman's home, Tivadar Zemplényi, 1894. ~ How little we truly need. Warm clothes, comfortable bed, hot broth, sunlight coming through a potted flower by a sparkling clean window, and the peace of knowing we recognize the beauty of this world.
