Shimmera, an art glass wall designed for the new state-of-the-art J. Wayne and Delores Barr Weaver Simulation Center at the Mayo Clinic Hospital in Jacksonville. The piece is a permanent feature of the Weaver Center’s lobby. Backlit and reminiscent of stacked glass, it is composed of kilncast colored glass. The overall dimensions of the wall are 8’-6’h x 3’w. The work’s three divisions allude to the Mayo Clinic’s “Three Pillars of Excellence” — Research, Education, and Care. 2012.
Since its inception, the Mayo Clinic has recognized the role of art, architecture, and beautiful environments in healing.
