Air Arts programme for the University Hospital of Derby and Burton, Heart sculptures.
Updated: Jan 19, 2022
Late last year we worked with Jenny Pickford Artist Blacksmith on behalf of the University Hospital of Derby and Burton to create two new heart sculptures to remember the colleagues lost throughout the pandemic and over the years gone by.
The hearts are based outside Royal Derby Hospital and Queen's Hospital Burton and stand 3.5m tall with a scattering of glass rainbow discs.
They are a lasting memory of the sacrifice, dedication and compassion of our NHS colleagues and a tribute to the communities.
Here is an extract from a poem called Heart Dedication, written by Chaplain Alison Thorpe.
