Nicklaus Children’s Hospital Foundation, along with donors Goldman Global Arts and Jessica Goldman Srebnick, unveiled a five-story mural painted at Nicklaus Children’s Hospital by world-renowned French street artist, Seth Globepainter.
The mural, which illustrates two children swinging from a vibrant tree while one of them waters it with colorful droplets, took 10 days to paint, and was inspired by the determination and the drive of the patients served at Nicklaus Children’s Hospital. A full view of the artwork will be visible from 20 rooms, allowing patients to look out at the bold and colorful artwork, much like those that grace the Wynwood Walls, in order to boost their spirits and accelerate healing.
“Seth’s masterpiece, will allow patients and their families an opportunity to enjoy a relaxing and uplifting environment without having to go far from the world-class care we provide,” stated Michael A. Mowatt, Executive Director of Philanthropy at Nicklaus Children’s Hospital Foundation.
“We are really excited with the outcome of the mural, and we knew Seth would be the perfect artist for this project,” affirmed Jessica Goldman Srebnick. “My husband, my children and I are thrilled to have been able to contribute a small piece of positivity to Nicklaus Children’s Hospital and its families.”
The unveiling concluded with a final stroke of the mural as a collaborative effort between Seth and Carlie Frullo, mother of one of the patients in the cardiac intensive care unit.
“I’d like to extend a heartfelt thank you to all for inviting me to complete this project. I was very happy to be at this hospital for 10 days and getting to see how it works. I hope you all enjoy it [the mural],” expressed Seth Globepainter.
