Murals by Philip Lumbang seen at LAC+USC Medical Center, Los Angeles - Untitled (Awesome Bears)

Untitled (Awesome Bears)

Philip Lumbang painted his signature Awesome Bears on a wall in the pediatric wing of the LAC+USC Medical Center. "Untitled (Awesome Bears)" was a donation through the Art of Elysium VIEW (Visual Imagery and Environmental Wellness) program, which brings art, music and drama into the hospital to benefit children with serious illnesses.

Research has shown that art can help speed the healing process and makes the hospital experience less stressful. Art of Elysium brings well known street artists into the hospital to create art that speaks to children and adolescents.
