Local Artwork at Prairie Parkway

A healing environment

Stunning artwork is often intended to lift spirits, brighten someone's day or otherwise make them think. In a healthcare environment, this often has special importance at unexpected times.

In advance of the opening of UnityPoint Health – Prairie Parkway, a special committee was formed to carefully integrate artwork in the spaces of the new facility that so many people in our community will enjoy. There was a strong consensus to display the work of local artists and those with ties to the state of Iowa.

Thanks to the work of the UnityPoint Health – Allen Foundation and the Prairie Parkway Art Committee, 13 artists are featured at the new facility. Susan Chrysler White, professor at the University of Iowa School of Art & Art History, was selected to complete the centerpiece installed alongside the three-story grand staircase.
