from “Bloom,” Anna Schuleit installation for the Massachusetts Mental Health Center closing

Bloom (art installation by Anna Schuleit at the old Massachusetts Mental Health Center) -- "to give something that has not been given to this place before: palettes of color, texture, and scent".

Flowers in the Hospital

These flower art installations by Anna Schuliet are so moving. She comments on flowers as, "the simplest gesture of caring and wishing-well"

"Bloom" was a site-specific project for the Massachusetts Mental Health Center, Boston, MA, in which I used 28,000 flowers in bloom and 5,600 square feet of live sod throughout the historic psychiatric institution to mark the persistent absence of flowers in psychiatric hospital settings. It was open to the public for four days, after which all flowers were donated and delivered to residents in shelters, halfway houses, and psychiatric hospitals. www.anna-haber.com
