Site-Specific

June 15, 2017 - January 4, 2018
Julia and Larry Pollock Gallery – between Q and G buildings
Cleveland Clinic main campus

Walking through Cleveland Clinic, you may notice that certain works of art are integrated into the architectural space. Encountering a site-specific artwork becomes an indicator of what building you are in, creating a landmark and, at the same time, engaging in a visual dialogue that can be experiential or intellectual. Unlike other art seen around Cleveland Clinic, commissioned works are typically large-scale and require up to two years of planning for a distinct area. The Art Program curatorial team works closely with artists, fabricators, and architects to bring an artist’s conceptual ideas to life in our facilities. Often, this process involves many different proposals and iterations before the final artwork is installed. In Site-Specific, viewers have the opportunity to see the development of these art projects as they unfolded.
