Art Installation between Stroger Hospital and the Central Campus Health Center
Lead artists: Mirtes Zwierzynski and Sonja Henderson with assistant artist Amanda Mudrovich
CPAG is partnering with the Cook County Bureau of Asset Management and the Cook County Hospital Systems to create a public art installation that activates a corridor linking Stroger Hospital and the new Central Campus Health Center. The first step of the process is to create a design in collaboration with students from Richard T. Crane Medical Preparatory Magnet High School with help from Crane's art teacher Mr. Gabriel Mejia. Lead artists Mirtes Zwierzynski and Sonja Henderson with assistant artist Amanda Mudrovich are holding workshops with the students to come up with the design. As part of the design process, CPAG held a special workshop where Cook County Board President Toni Preckwinkle, Alderman Walter Burnett (27th ward)and CEO of Cook County Health and Hospital Systems, Dr. John Shannon spoke with the students about the hospital systems' mission and history.
