All About Children

This building was once part of the Berkshire Knitting Mills complex and was renovated into a pediatric doctor's office. The owner of the practice worked with the students in the Public Art Workshop to create over 4o small paintings that tell the story of growth through healthy habits.

About the Project

The factory building originally had many windows that were later covered by renovation. The many images in the project chose appropriate subjects related to both growth and healthy lifestyle. As you face the front of the building and walk to the right each panel progresses in age. The clearstory panels at the top of the building have a subtle design inspired by the musical notation of Brahms's Lullaby on the East side and Beethoven's 5th on the West side. The front of the building has a sundial above the door further expanding on the theme of time.
