Fusion at RUH

Art, public Art

So I went to hospital today – but as an artist, not a patient. It was a site visit for Fusion, a collaboration between Bath Spa Uni (BSU) creative students, of any discipline,  and the Royal United Hospital in Bath (RUH).

Here are some pics of existing art in the RUH building. The atrium is a large space with public art works, and there are many courtyards which can be used for sculpture or interventions, as well as various corridor walls which are fitted with professional hanging systems.

I’m quite excited – already have three ideas to submit: poetry for an anthology for waiting rooms; lino cut prints for corridor walls; and a large head pot on a plinth in a courtyard. The proposals have to be in by 20th February, so I have time to make new work and photograph existing work, as well as contact the publishing student who plans the anthology.

RUH seems really supportive of the Arts ‘to stimulate healing and well-being, and create an uplifting environment for all who visit the hospital, or work in it.’ Something I can wholeheartedly support.

My first submission, and potentially my first public art work. Soon after my first exhibition. A lot of firsts this year.
