Art @ Des Peres Hospital

Graphic design by Emily AmbergerGraphic design by Emily AmbergerThrough the vision and support of Des Peres Hospital in St. Louis, MO, Art Saint Louis is pleased to join with VSA Missouri, the St. Louis Artists’ Guild and the Foundry Art Centre in presenting one of the largest collections of original, locally-made art in the St. Louis metropolitan area. Art @ Des Peres Hospital is a unique endeavor to connect and inspire our community through the work of local artists and enrich the lives of hospital patients, staff and visitors. As Des Peres Hospital CEO John Grah notes, “It is well documented that art can help in the healing process. Art can take us out of the moment by giving us something else to focus on. It is our hope with this exhibit that we can create a richer environment and a more pleasant experience for our patients and guests, not to mention our employees and medical staff.”

Our shared goals for the program are:

1) Create a dynamic, aesthetically rich and engaging environment through a multitude of artworks spanning a wide range of styles and expressions, to spark curiosity, elevate and enliven the intellectual and emotional wellbeing of hospital visitors and staff.
