The Grove

Public Art

Walter Hood Design Studio

Within Oakland Children's Hospital lies a captivating transformation—a realm evoking a pristine forest, designed by Hood Design Studio and fabricated by One Hat One Hand. 

This installation welcomes visitors as they enter the facility, offering hope and reassuring patients, parents and providers of a space dedicated to well-being. This journey through the imaginary forest signifies art's role in healing, reminding us of its ability to uplift the human spirit.

In its essence, the forest within Oakland Children's Hospital stands not just as a testament to the location's historical context, but as a testament to the remarkable synergy of human ingenuity and the healing power of art. It speaks to the profound impact that art can have on our emotions, our sense of place, and our collective journey toward hope—a masterpiece born from the depths of imagination, brought to life to inspire, heal, and touch hearts.
