State of the Arts investigates how art is part of the healing experience at the Capital Health Medical Center in Mercer County, NJ. Lin Swensson, breast cancer survivor and art consultant, is uniquely qualified to select art for hospitals – and in this case, she used only local area artists. Over four years, Swensson worked closely with doctors, staff, the architectural firm, and the community to commission original art. Artists interviewed include the architect and designer Michael Graves, who also designed furniture for the patient rooms.
