The Garden Without Strangers
Currently In Progress

About the Project:

In 2024, artist Lelia Byron will create a permanent sculpture for the courtyard of the new UW Health Eastpark Medical Center in Madison, Wisconsin, which will specialize in women's complex care and  adult cancer care. Serving as a connecting point between the two wings of the building, the sculpture is a symbol of empathy among strangers who have shared, often difficult, experiences. In the sculpture, four colorful sculptural objects that take inspiration from textile patterns together form a four-season garden that is active and vibrant even during a long winter. Patients, staff, and visitors at the medical center will be able to walk around a path through The Garden Without Strangers or to look at the sculpture from all of the courtyard facing windows.
