Smith have been commissioned to create a new art installation for The Somers Clinical Research Facility at Great Ormond Street Hospital.
The work is part of an arts programme run by the hospital and the brief is to represent some of the children's art work as a wall installation. The children have worked with an artist to create artwork based on the theme of leaves and Smith will be working with that artwork to create the installation.
The installation will be used in the new Somers Research Facility reception and corridor areas and will look at using the childrens’ designs in a variety of ways and scales, to work from a distance and close up.
Vivienne Reiss, Interim Arts Manager at Great Ormond Street said of Smith’s appointment: "The children worked with the artist Lucy Fergus to create beautiful leaf artworks, Smith have risen to the challenge of creating a striking design that keeps the integrity of their work."
Adrian Kimpton of Smith added: “We are absolutely delighted to be working and supporting Great Ormond Street on this project, a great client for us and using the childrens’ actual drawings to create the final piece gives us and the project a really positive feeling all round.”
