UNITE Portrait Project Installed
A UNITE art installation project was officially unveiled during an onsite walk-through with NIH leadership on Nov. 19.
The project focuses on diversifying art within NIH buildings and digital spaces. The artwork is meant to highlight the diversity of NIH staff and reflect the diversity of our nation in order to promote a sense of inclusivity and belonging. The effort additionally aims to enhance NIH recruitment and retention efforts.
The first phase of portraits will be installed in Bldgs. 1, 10 and 31 on the Bethesda main campus. The new interior design concept and artwork were crafted by the NIH Medical Arts Branch, which was recently recognized with the 2021 Graphic Design USA Health and Wellness Design Award.
