Sharra Frank

If you’ve ever spent time in a hospital, you know the dreary scene it conjures up. The Children’s Hospital and Clinic in Minneapolis is an entirely different story. Colorful walls and bright spaces are filled with books, toys, and uplifting original artwork by Minnesota artists- including Sharra Frank. Her commissioned 5’x6’ wall mosaic entitled Moondance greets visitors on the 6th floor lobby of the hospital- made with hand cut glass beads, stained glass, and vintage rhinestones all painstakingly assembled by hand in her Northrup King studio.

This segment aired as part of MN Original Episode #230.

    The mural is beautiful on the outside and you are beautiful inside and out. A wonderful mosaic in a perfect setting. Congratulations Sharra.

    Kudos to you Sharra – as someone who once worked for Children’s H in Boston, I can esp appreciate how your original art will enlighten and enliven the space positively for its patients … The piece is wonderful, magical and whimsical all at once. Glad to know your work is ever-expanding.

    Hi Sharra,
    Just noticed the info above paragraph states that your artwork is availabe to view on 3rd floor. It is actually on 6th floor. Thought you might want to know so others can locate it.
    Thanks for sharing!
