Additional Information

According to the artist, the piece symbolizes the nurturing and protection that the hospital offers its young patients. Each of the larger than life children's statues and silver umbrellas are beacons of a LED light show that is capable of projecting 16 million colors. Inside the structure, the breathtaking tree of 15 umbrellas soar upon a 65 foot steel ribbon, allowing the viewer to imagine joy that follows healing.
