A GIFT OF ART FOR CROSSROADS HOSPICE
Crossroads Hospice Society would like to acknowledge Grades 11 and 12
art students at Gleneagle Secondary School and teachers Melanie Stokes and Mike McElgunn for their time and commitment towards this beautiful garden fountain.
The year long art project gave students the opportunity to meet the needs of others, work closely with the hospice, explore career options and the role of the artist in the community. The project allowed the hospice an opportunity to work with students, raised awareness of hospice and created a permanent piece of artwork for our facility. The students planned, designed, produced and installed this beautiful fountain.
An amazing amount of work went into this beautiful piece of art. The dragonfly, a symbol for Crossroads Hospice Society, is imprinted in purple, green and blue tiles. These healing colours enrich the artwork and the focal point depicts a dragonfly zooming amongst cattails in the marsh and the added water feature makes this scene come alive. You have to see it to appreciate the effort and thought that went into this incredible piece of art.
Hospice is about community and this is an excellent example of working together.
