“Built in the 1920s, the renovated hospital campus contains more than a hundred contemporary and historical public artworks. The entryway to the main building displays five murals by WPA [Works Progress Administration] artist Glen Wessels. The WPA inspired three contemporary mosaic murals in the lobby depicting the construction of the Golden Gate Bridge. A status of Florence Nightingale by FAP [Federal Art Project] sculptor David Edstrom honors the founder of professional nursing.” (Guide.)
