28,000 Flowers in a Defunct Mental Institution

When a mental health hospital closes, how do you mark the occasion? For ninety-one years, the staff at the Massachusetts Mental Health Center helped society's outcasts. In 2003, it was time to move to a new facility. So the administrators hired artist Anna Schuleit to create an installation that would mark the occasion. Her response, entitled "Bloom", consisted of thousands of flowers covering the floors of the old building. Read about the reactions of staff and former patients at the link.
