The multi-dimensional piece has been funded primarily through a gift from My Angel Foundation.  The hospital worked through Moberg Gallery to commission Travis Rice, an Arizona artist, previously from Des Moines.

Approximately 65 percent of adults are registered donors in Iowa. Still, nearly 120,000 people nationally are waiting for their life-saving organ transplant; almost 700 of those are in Iowa. Over 1,500,000 tissue grafts are used every year across the country in common surgical procedures aimed at enhancing and saving lives. Approximately 40,000 corneal transplants are performed annually in the United States. Here in Iowa, more than 13,000 corneas have been provided for transplant since 1955.
