Since the 1970s, Harborview has been a leader in bringing the healing qualities of art into the health-care environment. We continue to harness the unique energy and humanizing attributes that make art a powerful tool in the restoration of the body and the spirit.
The Harborview art program serves our mission of healing with programs in the visual, literary and performing arts. Diverse artworks in all media are located throughout the medical center, contributing to an atmosphere of comfort and restoration.
In 2008, Harborview unveiled its Northwest Collection of Contemporary Ceramic Art. The collection is the only one of its kind in the region and is on permanent view in the lobby of the Norm Maleng Building.
The collection reflects contributions by regional artists to the national ceramics movement, beginning in the 1940s and continuing to present day. It includes 45 individual pieces given by Anne Gould Hauberg, one of Seattle’s most revered collectors and philanthropists.
