Select Art Tapped by New Lakeway Regional Medical Center in Austin to Provide Exquisite Art Work
Paintings, Prints, 3-Dimensional Sculptures Will Adorn the Eight Floors of the Facility Scheduled to Open in Spring 2012
Dallas, TX – October 4, 2011 – Dallas-based Select Art, a leading art firm and gallery, has been selected by the budding Lakeway Regional Medical Center in West Austin to provide art work for the center’s eight floors. The 230,000 square foot Lakeway facility is currently under construction and will open in Spring 2012 as a 103-bed acute care and full-service hospital that includes a helipad and an emergency room.
Select Art will provide the medical center approximately 200 pieces of art created by the firm’s well-known and emerging artists. The artwork includes paintings, prints, and 3-dimensional sculptures. For each of the center’s floors, Select Art will carefully determine the appropriate items that reflect the facilities’ environment.
The firm was selected by Pacific Medical Buildings, the leading developer of hospital-based healthcare facilities in the west and southwest. Pacific Medical is the developer of the Lakeway Regional Medical Center and complex.
“Select Art is exemplary and clearly distinguished itself from the other galleries,” said Loni Rush, director of interior design, Pacific Medical Buildings. “We were impressed with the firm’s art offerings and long-noted work in health care facilities, along with superior client service.”
“The gallery’s founder, Paul Adelson, exemplified his passion for art and commitment to us to recommend items that truly match our needs and goals,” Rush added.
For Adelson, to provide art work for the medical center is rewarding and gratifying. It also supports his firm’s goal to expand its clientele base in Austin and surrounding areas.
“I am honored that Select Art was chosen to provide art work for this exciting new facility,” Adelson said. “Art speaks volumes to all our senses and, particularly, in a health care environment, people feel spirited and enriched when they are surrounded by beautiful crafted pieces.”
The Lakeway Regional Medical Center is on Ranch Road 620, just 20 minutes from downtown Austin and convenient to several communities west of Austin.
