Bridgepoint Active Healthcare, Don Jail, 1959 urban health centre art.


Above you see a picture of 1959 of what are commonly referred to the mushroom piece. Created to create. a work for the entry of the Riverdale Hospital – now the  Bridgepoint Active Healthcare. These are the only remaining parts of the 1960 hospital.

Fortunately the “Mushrooms” and the surrounding landscaping are not yet open to the public. This irks this blog author.
