I created a 23 x 5 feet textile interpretation of the human immune system and installed it in a corridor at Owatonna Hospital where it was displayed November 2015 through February 2016. The evaluation methods were if the work was planned, designed, created and installed in time for an exhibition that opened on November 1, 2015. The large scale, site-specific work was installed over a period of three days October 29-31, 2015. 2: Several thousand people were introduced to Kimber Olson's textile art interpretation of the human immune system while at the Owatonna Hospital or by viewing photos of the installation in The Peoples Press, the local newspaper. The art installation was seen by more than a thousand people at the hospital and reached more than 7,000 views through the images and accompanying story in the Owatonna Peoples Press newspaper.
