Hos­pi­tal has art starter

The Sunday Telegraph (Sydney) - - NEWS -

GIDON Good­man has al­ready forced the state gov­ern­ment to lower over­priced park­ing at hos­pi­tals — now the teenager’s next mis­sion is to make the wards a more colour­ful and hap­pier place for chil­dren.

The 14-year-old, who suf­fers from Gaucher dis­ease, is part of the an­nual art ex­hi­bi­tion at the Syd­ney Chil­dren’s Hos­pi­tal.

“The worst thing about hos­pi­tals is that it’s bor­ing, you don’t have your com­puter and there’s noth­ing to break it up,” Gidon said.

“Art is a lot of fun, and it makes hos­pi­tal more bear­able.”

This year the art has also been trans­formed into fundrais­ing scarfs to raise money for the hos­pi­tal.

The col­lec­tion will be on dis­play un­til Novem­ber 30.
