This brought me close to tears.
After 91 years of continuoys operation, the original buildings of the Massachusetts Mental Health Center closed and was replaced by newer facilities  in November 2003. To mark this transition, artist Anna Schuleit was commissioned for a site-specific project to commemorate the life and history of MMHC. Schuleit filled the rooms, hallways and stairwells with nearly 28 000 potted flowers, all in bloom.
