What I Learned from the Cedars-Sinai Hospital Hallway Art


This collection started as a way to help a beloved husband heal.  I was there to share some time with my sister, as her beloved husband is battling cancer.


But when I went to get her a soda, and found my way back to the right space by following the trail left by the art in the hallway, I learned that a line. . .


. . . can be colored in. . .



. . . to make some great shapes.


Maybe a quilt block or two?

More about the art in the Cedars-Sinai hospital, on YouTube.  And Happy Veteran’s Day, if you are in the United States.  Thank a vet for their sacrifice.

  1. I’ve thought about you so much as you make the drive to visit – it has to be so hard, for everyone. Thank you for sharing the bright spot.

  2. It is wonderful how in the darkest moments you can bring light through a quilt. I will be praying for you BIL as he battles this nasty disease.

  3. What a poignant perspective. So sorry about your sister’s husband – so glad you can be support for her. My sisters were amazing support for me when my Bill had his health issues. I too have learned that what may seem like a black hole can actually be full of color and hope. Wishing the same for your family.

  4. The art is beautiful, a lovely thing in a hospital. My thoughts and wishes for your sister’s husband. Happy Vetran’s Day to you. Today is Remembrance Day in Canada.

  5. I love the idea of art in hospitals. Our local hospital has quite a collection as well, funded by survivors and their families, as well as by those left behind. I could see funding a piece of art in a hospital someday.

  6. Prayers for your sister and her husband, as well as the family, including you. What a wonderful discovery in the art at the hospital. And how it affects each and everyone who sees it is magical. I see you making a new quilt with what you have designed.

    Your quilt illustration reminds me of a Simply Quilts episode with a man who designated a particular block design for each alphabet letter and made quilts based on words, using these blocks for the quilt.
