The River gathers a number of related elements that are interesting to sit on or walk through into an informal meeting space.  Much like the nearby Connecticut River, the artwork is seen as a link to the world outside the hospital, and the boat references as ways of negotiating the river/pathway.  The major forms recall docks and ship's deck with their different patterns and changes of level, and the smaller forms recall canoes and guide boats.
 
Located in the Common Room, this work of art provides the youth with a stage to conduct performances upon within a collaborative and positive environment.
