Our team was thrilled to have the opportunity to visit and photograph this large-scale suspended art installation, a fabric atrium mobile we created for the Hussman Institute for Autism in Catonsville, Maryland.
Banner Art Studio was commissioned by the Purposeful Architecture Studio of Purple Cherry Architects in Annapolis, Maryland to create this colorful suspended art installation based on the Hussman Institute’s mission, logo and colors.
“When our client does not occupy an entire building, we need to find creative ways to convey their message. A large scale hanging art mobile in a space like the one we had at the Hussman Institute is an incredible way-finding tool,” says Cathy Cherry, Principal at Purple Cherry Architects.
Located on the campus of Catonsville College in Maryland, the Hussman Institute for Autism provides a continuum of resources to serve the needs of individuals with autism. The Institute works to translate research findings into interventions that will change how people with autism are supported day-to-day.
Banner Art Studio’s large scale suspended art installations are fabricated of the finest quality transluscent Dupont Solarmax nylon and welded stainless steel armature to react with both man-made and natural light like stained glass. They are designed to catch interior air currents and both natural and manmade light so that they move slowly, spark visual interest, complement interior decor and reflect a client’s core values, spirit and aspirations. They hang in education centers, museums, schools, universities and adorn corporate work spaces and atriums worldwide.
This suspended art installation contains the Hussman Institute’s logo symbols, the dove, heart and the autism puzzle piece, and creates a focal point in an otherwise empty architectural space. It helps brand the space as part of the Hussman Institute, welcoming staff, guests and families.
The fabrication, shipping and installation process Banner Art Studio has developed for our large-scale suspended art installations and fabric atrium mobiles means we can ship even a large piece like this from our studio in Del Norte, Colorado anywhere in the country or the world. Our clients repeatedly tell us:
“It was amazing how easy Banner Art Studio made the mobile to install. One person could handle a piece of the mobile easily, and they do an incredible job of marking things so it’s obvious for anyone to see how they fit together.”
Our artistic process helps hospitals, universities, research centers and nonprofits create maximum impact while staying within budget.
