RxArt, a non-profit organization that curates contemporary art installations in hospital settings, and Kiehl’s Since 1851, a New York-based purveyor of fine quality skin and hair care, have partnered to bring the artwork of Jeff Koons to Chicago’s Advocate Hope Children’s Hospital.

Koons’ characters will find a permanent home in the hospital’s radiology department, to soothe and cheer young patients, and brighten the typically sterile and potentially scary testing environment. Koons took no artist fee for his participation in this project.
