Design Task

All of the art for the Ridley-Tree Cancer Center was donated to the project so ACS was tasked with taking a completely new approach to execute the art for this site. Art from local artists, patients and staff were thoughtfully curated and displayed throughout the space for a seamless and successful end result. 

Key Features

A combination of donor art, patient art and staff art

40 original artist paintings throughout the space

52 original paintings by patients displayed in an interchangeable framing system, allowing for patient work to be rotated

Large-scale and grouped staff photography throughout corridors and patient rooms

project testimonials

"ACS was a pleasure to work with from start to finish. As we toured the building and went from area to area admiring the finished product, at every turn we saw pieces we knew from the acquisition process now in their full context and the result was fantastic. Many pieces looked as if the entire space was created around the art, rather than the art adding beauty to an existing space. The effect was breathtaking. The final product of their hard work exceeded our expectations and the feedback from patients and staff has been nothing but positive. It was such a rewarding experience to be on the art committee with ACS and see the beautiful result of their tireless effort!"

Brad Hess - Director of Planning & Development 

"We had the pleasure of working with Kira Stewart and Mary Ann Morales on the new Ridley-Tree Cancer Center at Sansum Clinic in Santa Barbara. We opened our doors to patients on September 18, 2017.  We are so proud of our new cancer center that will serve our patients and the community.  

We were humbled by the out pouring of support from the donor community, the art community and our cancer patients. Kira and Mary Ann served as curators, and it was truly a museum-quality installation.  The art will not only enhance the experience of our patients and their families but our physicians and medical staff. We hope we have the opportunity to work with them again and we would gladly serve as a reference for Kira, Mary Ann and Art Consulting Services."

"OH MY GOODNESS!!!!  What a gorgeous job you all did!!  I am so impressed by the entire project and the scope of all the work that you all worked so brilliantly to put together.

Thank you again for including me in your group of artists and all your enthusiasm.

 To have the privilege to have my work displayed in such an important Cancer Center, CCSB, and to bring joy and comfort to those who are there and visiting means more to me than I can say. THANK YOU ALL!!!"
