Art Meets Function

InformationComments Off on Art Meets Function

ASAC engaged the services of Cara Briggs Farmer, a local metal artist, to create an artistic extension to the balcony railing of our youth residential substance abuse treatment program, CD+. This project was the final element of the capital campaign ASAC conducted to renovate the CD+ facility that is located on ASAC’s main campus, 3601 16th Avenue SW in Cedar Rapids.

Close up of BalconyThe delay in adding the balcony extension was due to the difficulty we experienced in finding a design that would provide a positive, therapeutic look while also safeguarding our teen-age patients from possible suicide attempts or accidental falls.

We believe Cara of Synergy Metalworks did an excellent job in providing patient safety with style and creativity. The railing is a beautiful piece of art that provides needed protection for the teens we serve.

We are very pleased with the design and function of Cara’s metal work.
