On May 20, 2013, an EF-5 tornado tore through Moore, Okla., and destroyed the local hospital. The Norman Regional Health System made a commitment to the community to rebuild, and construction began one year later. To support this rebuild, the Norman Regional Health Foundation commissioned an art sculpture to grace the entrance to the new Norman Regional Moore facility.
A nationwide call to artists led to the submission of “Sanctuary” by MidOcean Studio Inc.'s artistic director, Brower Hatcher. Hatcher created “Sanctuary” as a symbolic healing chamber complete with Oklahoma sky-colored (blue, pink, gold, purple) steel rods and 2,000 prismatic crystal connectors.
This multidimensional healing chamber sits atop a base in the form of Norman Regional Health System’s logo. “Sanctuary” serves as a visual symbol of hope and healing and a celebration of resiliency.
