The University of Nebraska Medical Center and Nebraska Medicine are giving a look inside an art display at the new Fred and Pamela Buffett Cancer Center.

The Chihuly Sanctuary was created by world-renowned glass blower Dale Chihuly. The Sanctuary features an azure and jade Persian ceiling, a sapphire icicle tower, and reflection room.

UNMC and Nebraska Medicine say its a part of the Center's Healing Arts Program. 

"One of the most spectacular things about this whole entire building is how everything ties together," said Daniel DeBehnke, CEO Nebraska Medicine. "How the researchers and clinicians are in the same zone. And how we're using something like the art and not just this art but art throughout the building to enhance that healing experience."
