Mosaics for Middlesex Hospital

A permanent display of 105 mosaics donated by artists from all over the world for The MosaicArt Charity Project was opened on 30 June 2011.

The mosaics hang in the Transport Lounge of the Central Middlesex Hospital. London.

The project was organized by mosaic artist Karla Duterloo to raise funds for the Esther Benjamins Trust, and the permanent exhibition was formally opened by mosaic artist Martin Cheek and EBT founder Philip Holmes.

At the launch Philip Holmes spoke of the work they do with the forgotten children of Nepal ("Last week we rescued 9 children from slavery in the Indian circus trade") and how the work started. The charity has created a career path in mosaic-making for many of the rescued young people, giving them hope and a future. It was deeply moving listening to Philip describe in detail the work they do with such passion. Please do visit their website
