Art Students Light Up Hospital

Pediatric patients from The Herman & Walter Samuelson Children's Hospital at Sinai received illuminating gifts last week when National Art Honor Society students presented them with hand-made night lights.

The students, who attend Reservoir High School in Fulton, redesigned night lights for the patients. The idea stemmed from wanting to give children in the hospital a more secure feeling during the night. Using translucent materials like tissue paper, and combining them with 3-D materials, the students transformed simple night light designs into an uplifting, humorous, or beautiful relief sculptures.

The pediatric patients can take home their lights upon discharge. The patients and students were featured last week on WJZ-TV EyeWitness News.

Thanks to the art students who brightened up the day of both patients and staff!
