BJC Outpatient Center at Ellisville offers primary care, preventative care, and imaging services to patients and families in the Saint Louis area. Our client sought to create an environment that would promote healing and healthy lifestyles. They requested local artwork that would complement the soothing interior color palette and foster a supportive, comforting, and healing atmosphere.
The completed project consists primarily of artwork by local and regional artists, including Aly Ytterberg, Hannah Smith, M. Shawn Cornell, Jane Linders, Sheppard Morose, and Henry Domke. Artwork in various styles, sizes, and substrates are uniquely arranged to contribute to the modern aesthetic of the space.
The waiting room features framed and canvas prints by abstract painter Aly Ytterberg arranged in a gallery-style collection. A separate waiting area features a collection of uniquely stacked metal prints portraying multicolored flowers by local artist and illustrator Hannah Smith. Float-framed canvas prints by local painter and graphic artist M. Shawn Cornell depict locally recognizable plants and trees. Infrared photos capturing scenes of Shaw Nature Reserve, a local park, are placed throughout the space along with botanical abstract art prints by photographer Jane Linders.
Original paintings from contemporary artist Sheppard Morose incorporate natural shapes and add texture and dimension while beautifully complementing the space. The imaging suite has a custom wall graphic featuring a photo by renowned healthcare photographer Henry Domke. The corner-to-corner display makes the room appear more spacious with a breathtaking view of the natural landscape, contributing to a more calming atmosphere for patients.
At BJC Outpatient Center, local artwork brings the beauty of the outdoors inside and supports a calming, comfortable, and patient-friendly healing environment.
