Description

The artwork, Sun Salutations by artist Terry Braunstein, appears throughout the entry rotunda of the building. A large ceramic tile mosaic graces the entranceway on the outside of the building. Within the rotunda, a ceramic tile trim encircles the room and highlights a semi-circular soffit above the reception desk. Two large mosaics made of glass, ceramic and photographic ceramic tiles are placed low enough on the wall for both children and adults to appreciate the textures and rich colors of the mosaics. A third smaller mosaic can be found above the reception desk.
Terry Braunstein’s artwork for the Sun Valley Health Center was inspired by images of the sun drawn from a variety of cultures. The sun images relate both to the name of the community as well as the sun as a symbol of regeneration, warmth and healing.
