Ronald McDonald House Chicago Donor Wall: Rubbery Smile

I Smile

I smile when you say hi,
I smile when you come by,
I smile to know your there,
I smile to know you care,
I smile to see your smile,
I smile even though your miles,
I smile when you make a silly joke,
I smile to give me hope,
I smile when you say good night,
I smile when it’s just right

80 unique doors will be showcased on two gallery walls in the main public area of the Ronald McDonald House being built in the heart of downtown Chicago near Ann & Robert H. Lurie Children’s Hospital. The doors are meant to symbolize the philosophy that ” The doors of Ronald McDonald House are always open for you.”  To learn more click on the following links:

Materials used: 

  • Ground rubber in various colors provided by No Fault
  • Found object spigot knob
  • Acrylic spray painted dark purple

Original sketch was simple and quick to create. Turing the drawing of the door into a fun and unique look is never a dull process.

Plywood backer board was used to support a pour-in-place rubber application that filled around laser cut acrylic shapes.

Color rubber comes in 12, fun to touch, colors.

 Polyurethane is added to ground rubber and mixed to a sticky consistency. The gooey stuff is then sprinkled where needed and flattened into place.
