A COMMUNITY art project that aims to bring a bright and optimistic atmosphere to hospital wards is looking for volunteers and sponsors. Brushstrokes by Art in Hospital volunteers already have brightened the radiotherapy unit and the children's ward at the Prince of Wales Hospital. Eleven murals of pastoral scenes now adorn the unit's walls, while a fairy land was completed last month in children's ward 7D. The artists, mostly Fine Arts students of the Chinese University, painted cartoon figures around the beds and transformed the room for urodynamic studies into a small fenced house, with a luxuriant apple tree standing in a vast pasture beside it. The art project has been co-organised by the Hong Kong Art Centre and the Garden Streams-Hong Kong Fellowship of Christian Artists. Their volunteer artists also have painted landscape murals at the Chung Hom Kok Cheshire Home, a sanatorium mainly for physically disabled people. Many other hospitals have asked the organisers to bring the scheme to their wards, but the lack of funds and volunteers means there is a long queue. Anyone who wants to help should call Miss Sum on 582-0284.
