Jennifer Strunge (dioramas)
Hometown: Baltimore, Maryland
Graduated from Maryland Institute College of Art.

A colorful, glass-enclosed display case is embedded in the walls at the elevator lobby of seven of the children's floors. Each of these has been outfitted with colorful dioramas created by Baltimore artist Jennifer Strunge. Using recycled clothing and cloth, Strunge has populated each niche with soft, fanciful groups of creatures--including monkeys, bunnies and an octopus--holding and reading actual books.

These dioramas serve a dual purpose--they help in wayfinding, providing artful location clues; they also open a window into a special world, encouraging patients, their families, and the rest of the hospital community to find and explore the other works of art in the building that were inspired by the books on display, as well as many more.
