A Philips CT scanner at Advocate Hope Children’s Hospital in Chicago has provided a canvas for pop artist Jeff Koons. The monkey decals on the scanner cowling blend into the jungle setting painted on the walls and hallways of the hospital’s CT suite. The artwork, adorned by Koons’ iconic balloon dog, hanging heart, and donkey imagery, was commissioned by RxArt, a nonprofit organization that curates contemporary art installations in hospital settings, and Kiehl’s Since 1851, a New York-based provider of skin and hair care products. The goal is to cheer and sooth young patients who enter the otherwise sterile and potentially scary testing environment.
