Museum gets to the heart of the matter

October 18th, 1991

The Desert Sun

    RANCHO MIRAGE - As tricuspid valves go, this one's a doozy. Standing 14 feet tall, the portal to the Heartland Museum spans the space from wall to wall and ceiling to floor.
     The valve replica is an appropriate entrance to the museum at the Heart Institute of the Desert. It's a matter of art imitating life.
     "You're walking into the valve that's the entrance to the heart," said Adam Rubinstein director of medical illustration for the institute. Rubinstein designed the massive sculpture.
     "The body is really, really beautiful," he said. There is magnificent structure and architecture to the body."
    Stepping into the mauve web, Rubinsteins's motion triggered a subtle heartbeat sound.
    The valve has been a year in the making. Crews have worked around the clock for four weeks, trying to get it ready for an open house held at the institute Thursday night, he said

The Desert Sun
HEARTRENDING: Adam Rubinstein, director of medical illustration and Heartland Museum curator, looks through a heart valve entrance at Heartland at the Heart Institute of the Desert in Rancho Mirage Thursday. Rubinstein is the artist responsible for all the larger than life displays at the museum.

    The web- like model is carved from urethane foam with a fiberglass skin. "Its the same process as making a custom race car," he said.
    There are still a few finishing touches left, Rubinstein said.
    The flaps of the valve need to be installed. And lights that are synchronized to the sound should be functioning in a day or so.
    "The lights will pulsate with the heart. It'll make it look like the whole thing is beating."
