In 2003 the 90-year old Massachusetts Mental Health Center (MMHC) was due to be demolished to make way for newer facilities. Anna Schuleit was the artist commissioned to create an unforgettable memorial. She is a visual artist who studied painting at the Rhode Island School of Design (RISD) in Providence and Rome. After seeing the drab and somewhat depressing interior of the building, Anna decided to cover most of the facility’s floor area with a sea of flowers. The installation entitled “Bloom” was opened to the public for four days.
