CIGNA Health Spring Chicago “helping the helpers”
The scene – indirectly courting Cigna for years - March 2015 a call received of thoughts of their newly expanded space “it’d be cool to have one of our patients’ artistic talent and passion on the walls”.
On our 1st meeting I was immediately intrigued in the local geographical diversity of the project. Ten conference rooms, each named after different parts of our city. A perfect match – sharing my discoveries from tooling around making pictures and making friends as well!
I had such a ball taking day trips exploring locations I’d not been to before (Edison Park, Bridgeport, etc.) and back to other areas I had (Hyde Park, Logan Square, Lincoln Park, etc.). From my “look-books” of images from the neighborhoods and the city, the choices made were decisive and impactful. Mediums chosen were a combination of large canvas and metal-framed posters (36”x48” and such).
"Not only is the art work beautiful, it is refreshing to the eyes and literally energizes me during the day as I view the many pieces in the work space. "Sonja Boone, MD, FACP, Alegis Care, Chief Medical Officer
The Cigna representatives through the entire process were a pleasure to collaborate with. Reactions and appreciation shared by them and employees were heartening as the installation was being hung. For me it was the perfect place and time.
Many more “Lori’s Stories” to come. Be well!
