A visit to EPIC-- Part One

This week, I went on a field trip with some 7th graders at our school.  We toured the EPIC company which makes medical software for hospitals and clinics.  The company has three different locations in the Madison, WI area.  The campus we visited had about 13 different buildings.  Each building has a decorative theme.  There was TONS of artwork from local artists around the buildings.  It was amazing!  There was so much to take pictures of, that I only took pictures of my favorites.   I will tell you about the tour in two blog posts.

Here's me next to a Dr. Suess style sculpture.

This was a sculpture attached to a picture frame.  The guy is super realistic looking and it kind of creeped me out when I looked at it up close.

Here's part of the outside courtyard.  The 13 buildings are connected by indoor walkways.

Look at the paintings on the wall.. this was a New York themed area.

Look at this set-up in the hallway!

Wow! How cool to have a large corporation value the arts and be willing to share it with their community. How rare. I bet the students were mightily impressed!

What a fun tour. I wish when we were in school we did more things like this. I know WI is the dairy state but farm tours and apple orchards are not the only tours school kids deserve.

Nice to find another WI blogger.

BTW - next week I am hosting a giveaway. I hope you come enter, or send friends.

Love it! What a fun field trip! A close friend of mine works at Epic and I always love hearing about all the cool things that company has for it's employees- the art is fantastic! Thanks for posting!

And I agree with DogsMom... nice to see another WI blogger!! ;)

EPIC employees a ton of people in Madison. Two of the kids we were with had parents that worked there. It was a super cool trip. I'll have to check out your blogs if you are from WI too!
