Veterans Affairs Outpatient Clinic
The Veterans Affairs contracted Art + Artisans through a competitive bid process to provide art consulting services for their new 225,000-square-foot outpatient clinic. Art + Artisans provided turn-key services, including management of the overall art budget, research and selection of commissioned art and photography, procurement, and security installation of 200 pieces of art.
A monumental hanging sculpture, Gathering Waves, greets visitors upon entry. The waves are a metaphor for the forward motion of the military and the care that comes from gathering together.
The mission of the V.A. Outpatient Clinic is to provide veterans with complete care, physical or psychological. Their chosen art provides a soothing environment with many natural elements of Central Texas: trees, water, rocks, flora, and fauna.
