Bloom: 28,000 Flowers Installed At The Abandoned Mental Institution

After 91 years of continuous operation the original buildings of the Massachusetts Mental Health Center (MMHC) closed in November of 2003. To mark the transition of the original building of the Massachusetts Mental Health Center from the physical shape it has been, to the remembered, artist Anna Schuleit was commissioned to create a site-specific project.


  1. Kind-of an odd use for so many flowers. If the purple ones are lavender, I want to go in that room.

  2. What are they going to do with the flowers when they start wilting and dying?

  3. Chris, it's an "art installation" Doubt they even thought that far.
