“It’s a great example of how a new location can recontextualize an artwork, give it new life, and create a new conversation,” said Janae Huber, ArtsWA’s Art in Public Places (AIPP) Collections Manager.
Adams placed the collection throughout the corridors of the childcare center. Many pieces are visible through classroom windows, and the older artworks hang beside newly purchased works. The childcare center has six classrooms, as well as outdoor classrooms and play spaces, for 84 children and 20 staff.
“Encounters with art at a young age can stick with us for a lifetime,” said Adams. “I made it a priority to select artworks that would be iconic and accessible but might also soothe and inspire wonder in young minds."
