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
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
