Sarah Misselbrook has been commissioned by Fenwick 2 Health and Well Being Centre in Lyndhurst, Hampshire to create 2D and 3D works for permanent installation in and around the centre.
Fenwick 2 is a not for profit organisation with the aim to develop more health and social care services for those in need.
Misselbrook will be making regular trips to the New Forest based centre for visual inspiration for the creation of her works which will focus on the relationship between the human body and nature, bringing the forest atmosphere into the building. As well as the creation of this body of work, Misselbrook will be visiting the St Michael and All Angels primary school in Lyndhurst to run a workshop with pupils based upon the theme. Misselbrook will also be running a workshop at the centre with the Phoenix club which is for elderly members of the local community to meet and mingle.
The project will culminate in an opening launch event at the centre in the summer of 2009 and details will be posted on the site.
This project has been funded and supported by the Arts Council England, SCA and Fenwick 2 League of Friends.
