Choctaw Nation – Talihina Hospital

A colorful suspended sculpture is found in the lobby of Talihina Hospital in Choctaw Nation. Each piece is made up of dichroic filter in shapes of leaves and patterns that speak to the Native American culture.
Individually hanging 200 dichroic pieces was no easy feat, but in the end, it was well-worth it.
