Bringing the Arnold Arboretum into the hospital
At Brigham and Women’s Faulkner Hospital, we recognize the healing effects of nature and are committed to bringing the beauty and tranquility of our surrounding neighborhood indoors for our patients, staff and visitors to enjoy. As part of a generous gift from Dedham Savings Bank, artist Patricia Burson was commissioned to create a painting for the first floor hallway. Her work, titled “Aurai,” depicts springtime flowering trees from right here in the Arnold Arboretum. Even if you can’t be outdoors to feel the gentle breeze on your skin, the hope is that all can experience the calming touch of nature when they come through our doors.
