Using art to bring holiday cheer

December 22, 2011

If there’s a bigger reason to say, “Bah, humbug!” during the holidays than

Rich Liekweg, president Barnes-Jewish Hospital and Barnes-Jewish West County Hospital, partakes in the Arts + Healthcare painting project at Barnes Lodge holiday party with two guests.

having a loved one in the hospital, it might be having a loved one in a hospital far away from home.

The staff of Barnes Lodge, the hospitality house operated by Barnes-Jewish Hospital for patients and family members who live 50 miles outside of the St. Louis area, know that.

So, Barnes Lodge held their annual holiday party to bring holiday cheer to patients, their families and Barnes-Jewish team members on Dec. 16.

 Guests shared a meal and participated in a painting project sponsored by the Barnes-Jewish Hospital’s Arts + Healthcare program. The final “painted pieces” will be put together in mosaic form and hung in the Barnes Lodge kitchen for guests to enjoy.

Barnes Lodge provides a home away from home for families and patients who travel to St. Louis for medical treatment. If you would like to make a charitable gift to support Barnes Lodge, please visit The Foundation for Barnes-Jewish Hospital’s website.

Barnes Lodge welcomed patients, their families and Barnes-Jewish team members to celebrate the holidays at their annual dinner and party.
