Baptist Medical Center East

Ida V. Moffett, David Satcher, and William Gorgas, all 4x4', acrylic on panel
These were all part of my volunteer service at the Baptist Medical Center East during my senior year at Auburn University. I had a close aunt pass away after spending much of her life in and out of hospitals. I decided that there should be beautiful, meaningful pieces of art adorning the walls of hospitals because many people get their last look at life while in hospitals and why should they be stuck with drab and macabre settings? They shouldn't! I hope that my art fills the walls of many more hospitals in the near future!

I have spent many enjoyable minutes staring at these painting on my various trips to Baptist East. I had no idea they were yours. Thank you for caring about us patients. To a person whose body is fading, you'd be amazed how much hope or peace a splash of color and a smiling portrait can bring.
