Project Description

SSM Health

Client

Jefferson City, Missouri

Location

Commissioned Art Installment

Project Type

2017

Install Date

SSM St. Mary’s Hospital

SSM Health St Mary’s Hospital is nestled in the hills near Jefferson City, Missouri. Our team was tasked with commissioning a work of art that would tie into the facility’s architecture and interior design as well as the surrounding nature.

SSM Health requested a work that would bespeak its Catholic heritage, but remain accessible and meaningful to the larger public. ARCH Design proposed local sculptor Michael Bauermeister create an installation of carved wood panels because he draws inspiration from the very woods that surround the hospital.

Our client also wanted the art to reflect the concept in the quote: “Like branches on a tree, we may grow in different directions, but our roots remain as one.” Bauermeister’s installation underscores this idea, as it is comprised of several separate panels that span two walls, but are unified by a single subject. We are proud to collaborate with artists like Bauermeister whose projects align so well with the missions of our healthcare clients.
