Packard Children’s extensive art collection is designed to engage families, feed the curiosity of children and encourage exploration of the building’s setting. This art supports the hospital’s larger mission by fostering innovation and education for children, expectant mothers and their families. Through commissions from living artists, the art collection is integrated into the architecture, landscape and hospital community to create a healing journey for anyone served by Stanford Medicine Children’s Health.
