1. Art in hospital Nova

      The unique lightning of Petri Vainio

      Hospital Nova will be opened January 19th 2021. My work as art coordinator is finally over and all the art pieces are on site: 15 new artists and designers were given a place and about 500 works from the hospital old collection were hang up. The architecture by JKMM with its strong handwriting, materials and colour setting gives a feeling of intimacy and will hopefully, with the arts, be a heeling experience for the patients and a joy to staff members.
