Behind the Art at Tucson Medical Center

The six life size prints hanging in the corridor of the Orthopedic Tower lobby at Tucson Medical Center in Tucson, Arizona are digital enlargements from my original work on paper. The original work was created in pencil and ink with the addition of metal and found materials. The six life size digital  prints are a gift to TMC and are now part of their permanent collection. Limited edition prints of this artwork are available for purchase.  Thirty percent (30%) of all the sales will be donated to the TMC Healing Arts Program.  See below. 

This project would not have been created without the inspiration of my late husband, Marius Wagner MD (1949-2017). He always encouraged our three sons Richard, Patrick and Eric, his patients and me to reach for the stars. Dr. Wagner loved TMC and all it stood for. How fitting that this art has made its way back to this amazing institution where Dr. Wagner worked for 35 years! It is my hope that this installation will be a constant source of  inspiration to all those patients, families, nurses, doctors, employees and guests who walk the halls of Tucson Medical Center.

A special thanks goes out to Lauren Rabb, Curator of the Healing Arts Program, for having the vision to bring this “larger than life” project to the halls of Tucson Medical Center. I would also like to recognize my amazing photographer, Robin Stancliff and my digital guru Richard McBain and his amazing staff at Centric Photo in Tucson. This team brought my vision to life.

Limited edition, signed and dated prints are available for purchase. Thirty percent (30%) of all the sales will be donated to the TMC Healing Arts Program.
