Martha Jefferson Hospital Tile Project

The patient rooms at MJH were designed by current practice – single bed; walls with TV, shelving; medical support fixtures; and required, fixed patient information. There was no room for art. FFA, to relieve the institutional feel, commissioned 12 ceramicists to create 144 original tiles for the patient baths.


Martha Jefferson Hospital Cafe Radish Banner

Located in the Café is a fireplace with a 20 feet tall and 4 feet wide niche. FFA enlarged and transferred to wall covering a prominent Charlottesville photographer’s image of radishes. Besides creating a unique piece of appropriate art for the café, the radishes are currently grown in Monticello’s gardens and were originally grown by Martha Jefferson, Thomas Jefferson’s daughter, and for who the hospital is named.
