The entryway of the new Golisano Center for Community Health at Niagara Falls Memorial Medical Center took on some colorful charm this week with the installation of a mobile created by kinetic sculptors Matt Richards and Ben Cogdill of Ekko Custom Mobiles in Portland, Oregon.
The commissioned work consists of hundreds of translucent blue shapes formed from recycled polymer material and suspended from the center's vaulted ceiling by 35 separate hangers.
Renowned for developing clever design solutions for challenging site locations, Richards' and Cogdill's creations hang in Europe, Saudi Arabia, Singapore, South America and across the U.S.

The center, which is scheduled to open in May, is supported by a $3.5 million gift from businessman and philanthropist Tom Golisano. It will provide comprehensive integrated health care services to adults with special needs, including intellectual and developmental disabilities, and to their families.
