Kottler Metal Products is excited to have its round pipe and rectangular tube compound bends featured in the "Spirit" artwork display, a new art feature outside of the University of Oklahoma Children's Hospital.  The display consists of twelve illuminated kites and three bronze sculptures of children at play. The artist, Matthew Placzek, calls his piece "a playful scene entering the hospital meant to offer enjoyment to the young children."

An array of kites took center stage as a new exterior art feature was dedicated at the Children's Atrium at the University of Oklahoma Health Sciences Center in Oklahoma City.
 
Patients, parents, medical staff as well as campus and community leaders were on hand to dedicate the new artwork "Spirit" by Matthew Placzek. The artwork features bronze statues and a series of brightly-colored kites that are illuminated at night. It stands as a warm welcome for the countless children who receive their care at The Children's Hospital at OU Medical Center and OU Children's Physicians outpatient clinics.
 
"The new artwork you see behind me caps a series of impressive projects over the past decade - all aimed at elevating children's health care in Oklahoma to another level of excellence," said Dean Gandy, chief executive officer of the University Hospitals Authority and Trust at the dedication event. He also acknowledged the important role of the art committee in the art selection process.
 
"This committee included campus, civic and community leaders. Together, they oversaw a selection process that began with submissions from many talented artists worldwide.   The committee helped shape the vision, and was instrumental in the selection of the art," Gandy said.
 
Pediatric patients from Children's were on hand to present members of the committee with special awards in gratitude for their efforts.
 
Children from the hospital and clinics also were treated to kites, refreshments and a chance to have their photo taken with Chipper, the hospital's friendly, feathered mascot.
