Original artwork by Oxford students displayed at Chenango Memorial Hospital

NORWICH – Thanks to the efforts of Oxford art teacher Joni Eaton’s mixed-grade advanced art class patients in the surgical wing of Chenango Memorial Hospital (CMH) will have something new to peruse while visiting.



A unique three month long art project, funded by the CMH Auxiliary, challenged the 19 high school students to design and paint original artwork on a 2 foot by 4 foot piece of masonite, which then replaced existing ceiling tiles in various rooms throughout the surgery area.

“This has been a great project and everyone took it very seriously,” said Eaton. “The students really seemed to enjoy the idea that they’re giving patients something interesting and soothing to look at.”
