“Keys to Cures” Photography and Sculptures
Intarcia engaged Kelly to acknowledge the talent, tenacity and patient stories within the pursuit of life-changing medicines. Intarcia’s novel technology platform, the Medici Drug Delivery System™, features a matchstick-sized osmotic mini-pump that is placed just beneath the patient’s skin in the abdominal wall. Intarcia’s first investigational therapy for type 2 diabetes, leveraging this technology, is currently under FDA review. With a growing pipeline, Intarcia aims to unleash disruptively innovative medicines for the prevention and treatment of chronic diseases, and unlock life’s possibilities for patients. Kelly’s luminous “Keys to Cures” sculptures have been adopted as a powerful symbol for how the work of Intarcia teams is unlocking cures through innovation. Kelly’s art is a permanent installation at Intarcia’s new Seaport District, Boston headquarters. Intarcia also commissions Kelly to create “Key Awards” that honor outstanding staff efforts. The artwork and Kelly’s contributions on-site have led to many visible expressions of company culture and values. Kelly works in a flexible capacity as the resident artist and design consultant.
