SSM Health Cardinal Glennon Pediatric Specialty Clinic is the first and only pediatric specialty clinic serving the North St. Louis County area. ARCH collaborated with SSM Health’s Senior Project Manager to procure a collection of vibrant, hand-painted artwork to complement the Cardinal Glennon color palette of green, purple and orange.
To help meet our client’s budget, the canvas paintings were framed using a straight-fit technique, which brings edge-to-edge color and does not require the use of mats or glazing (glass or acrylic). During the fabrication process, ARCH applied a protective coating to each piece to provide an added layer of protection and allow for regular cleaning.
The playful imagery depicted in the art is intended to help put young patients at ease by alleviating feelings of discomfort often experienced by children when visiting the doctor’s office. The result is a fun, colorful environment that appeals to patients and visitors of all ages.
