Artist Sherri Warner Hunter and her team were recently on site installing several mosaic pieces in the Emerald Garden of the new Lucile Packard Childrens Hospital Stanford. As part of the creative process, Sherri conducted patient workshops where kids created crayon and oil pastel drawings of rocky shore creatures reflective of the California ecosystem. These drawings were then turned into small mosaic pieces, including the sea otter pictured here. Children visiting the Emerald Garden will be delighted by the many play features, including a pelican perch bench, elephant seal slide and rocking shrimp. The garden will officially open when we debut our new building in December 2017. #growingtogether

A childs first haircut is a memorable milestone, and the occasion is no different for the gray wolf, a rock art formation incorporated into the Dunlevie Garden at the new Lucile Packard Childrens Hospital Stanford opening in December 2017. Recently the wolf received a trim for the very first time. Swipe to see the haircut in progress. Hidden within the landscape, the gray wolf is one of many animals showcased on the new hospital property that are representative of the California ecosystem. Desert dinosaurs, a banana slug, and three bear cubs are just some of the animals converging at a central meeting place. Created by concept designer, Michael Green, the wolf rock formation wont be missed by astute children exploring the more than 3.5 acre expanse of green space and gardens that are designed to reflect the unique beauty of Northern California.
