Mercy West Clinics

For the walls of Mercy West Clinics, Moberg art consultants helped select a wide range of paintings and photos of the Des Moines city skyline, by day and by night. Goizane Esain’s digital photographic slices are panoramic across a long low wall. Large-scale works by Jacob Sharp, David Rose, Fred Easker, and Karen Strohbeen include different perspectives on Des Moines life, as well as rural scenes. Many of the works focus on the ‘sky’ part of skyline, offering deep hues and intense color combinations to express the climate and seasonal changes experienced in the region. The selections on the whole offer telescopic depth and views of the city, as if you are seeing it from a distance, then closer and closer, until a detail of the Iowa State Capitol, by Luchsinger, shines gold.
