New Artwork for the Cancer Unit at Dorset County Hospital

Arts in Hospital announce that the DCH Charity, the Lions Club of Dorchester & District and the Friends of DCH have all supported new artwork projects in the Cancer Unit at Dorset County Hospital which will open officially toward the end of the year.

The Arts in Hospital Team are working now with artist Chris Tipping on window vinyl designs for the new cancer unit based on his existing floor designs are which are enjoyed throughout the hospital with their language inspired by the Jurassic Coast and its fossils (see featured image). 

They have also asked the members of Dorchester Camera Club to capture fresh new images for light boxes in the cancer unit – sayint it will be fantastic to display the artwork of talented local photographers. 

Also in development is a new project working with the Living Tree and Purbeck Workshop cancer support groups and renowned socially-engaged artists Davina Drummond and Yara El-Sherbini who Arts in Hospital hope will be working as “artists in residence” in the Cancer Unit (after some fundraising!)
