Purchased with the 1% for Art dollars that were generated as part of the construction of the Harborview Medical Center's trauma center and clinics, the collection is on display throughout the public corridors and waiting rooms of the facility. Harborview embraces its mission of treating all people, regardless of economic status or cultural background, with exceptional care, and the hospital's art program has been developed to fully support that mission, using art to reduce stress, create an atmosphere of hope and healing, and convey a sense of individual dignity and worth upon all who enter the doors. The Cultural Heritage Collection features more than 40 artists.
