Murals brighten Bronx healthcare facility

New murals at a CenterLight Health Systems in-patient care facility highlight the best of the Bronx

New murals at a CenterLight Health Systems in-patient care facility highlight the best of the Bronx, according to an article on the Bronx Times website.

Created by Splashes of Hope, an organization that brings murals to medical facilities, the four paintings depict the New York Botanical Gardens, Yankee Stadium in 1923 and today, the Bronx Zoo, and City Island in four seasons.

“We were very careful to pick four places in the Bronx that we feel would be meaningful for the residents here because we want to dedicate these murals to them,” said CenterLight administrator Linda Murray.

Splashes of Hope, a Huntington, Long Island-based non-profit, was founded in 1996 by artist Health Buggée “as a reaction to her own life experiences in standard medical settings,” according to the article.

The murals were hand-painted on movable four-by-six-foot Masonite panels and contain people of all ethnic backgrounds, adults in wheelchairs being assisted by caretakers and the health system’s bus.
