Artworks Donated to UCLA Medical Center Tustin
Bringing Joy to the South Bay
Wednesday, May 28, 2014
The work of Erin Hanson can now be viewed at the UCLA Medical Center in Tustin, California. Erin is incredibly proud to bring life and color to those that may desperately need to have a reminder of what this magnificent world holds and for the doctors, nurses and staff that work tirelessly for their fellow man.
"As chair of the Art Beautification Project for Harbor-UCLA Medical Center's Surgery and Emergency Department Building Project we were very pleased to receive the donation of images from a well-known California Artist, Erin Hanson.
"Our vision was to depict as one walks into the grand hall of the main building poignant landscapes depicting California. Erin’s work printed on large 6-foot canvases takes the viewer from the ocean to the desert to the rolling hills and mountains of this great state. Her work clearly illustrates the art-of-the-state for this state-of-the-art building and facilities for patients of the South Bay."

ERIN HANSON has been painting in oils since she was 8 years old. As a young artist, she worked at a mural studio creating 40-foot-tall paintings on canvas, while selling art commissions on the side. After getting a degree in Bioengineering from UC Berkeley, Erin became a rock climber at Red Rock Canyon, Nevada. Inspired by the colorful scenery she was climbing, she decided to paint one painting every week for the rest of her life. She has stuck to that decision ever since, becoming one of the most prolific artists in history. Erin Hanson's style is known as "Open Impressionism" and is now taught in art schools worldwide. With thousands of collectors eagerly anticipating her work and millions of followers online, Hanson has become an iconic, driving force in the rebirth of contemporary impressionism.
