Featured Installation in the New Expansion at Chelsea Community Hospital

Chelsea Community Hospital recently completed a multimillion dollar expansion started in 2011. As part of the new expansion, the new space is filled with carefully selected artwork. Members of the hospital’s art council, which is composed of a group of community members, used an outdoor, nature theme when selecting pieces used to decorate the facility.

As part of that theme, Annette Baron was commissioned to create a piece, shown here at the studio and titled Succulent, which is now on permanent display in the Atrium, the new main entrance to the hospital. You can visit it and all the other artwork in person at Chelsea Community Hospital, at 775 S. Main Street, Chelsea MI 48118.
