Abstract Frank Stella sculpture 'Adjoeman' joins Cedars-Sinai artworks
An enormous abstract sculpture, a sailboat of sorts, rests on a pedestal at the intersection of Beverly and San Vicente boulevards in West Hollywood. Its dark, carbon-fiber sails seem to billow in the wind, and corkscrew spirals of stainless steel, like twirling gusts of air, dance around it. Cedars-Sinai Medical Center rises up behind it, like towering, angry waves. Read more.

The Third Metric
Art is many things: beautiful, controversial, funny, expensive. But no matter what it looks like, art has the power to heal us.
Since the 1970s, the staff at Cedars-Sinai Medical Center in Los Angeles has curated a growing art collection that adds some character to the sterile hospital environment. Curator John T. Lange told HuffPost Live he sees the artwork's powerful effects on patients and staff alike, and it's become an integral part of Cedars-Sinai. Read more.

The World-Renowned Center of Innovative Healing — Past, Present and Future
The year was 1966. As Frederick Weisman lay ill in his bed at Cedars-Sinai Medical Center, his wife Marcia desperately looked for ways to cheer him up. Frederick, a well-known collector, had always loved to gaze at the art on his walls at home, so when Marcia brought him one of his favorite pieces (a Jackson Pollock painting), he responded joyfully. Each day, as Marcia brought another piece to the hospital, his recovery would surprisingly progress. Visit the ART and Living web page.

Cedars-Sinai Medical Center
LA Weekly / Best of LA
Best Modern Art Museum for Your Health
If you want Calder, Oldenberg, Warhol, Lichtenstein and other icons, the medical center to the stars, Cedars-Sinai Medical Center, is the place to go. Problem is, you might have to break a leg to get into the show or have a friend who's been assigned a room. That's because most of the good stuff is located on walls in patient-care areas, thanks to a Cedars mantra: "We believe in the healing power of art." All of the art is donated and on permanent display. But you don't have to have surgery to get a glimpse of noteworthy artists like Vasa at the admitting desk or a Warhol print near the microwave oven in the blood donor unit. Stop by and give a pint. Small price for admission. 8700 Beverly Blvd., Mid-City. (310) 423-3277, cedars-sinai.edu.
