Artwork presented to Foundation
SAMC staff, visitors and patients are enjoying new artwork recently placed outside the Cancer Center. “Angels of Inspiration” was donated to the SAMC Foundation by Dothan artist Ann Hart and her husband, Bill. The large piece is a mixed media assemblage that includes pastels, handmade paper and copper leaf. Ann says she began the piece years ago when she was teaching 7th grade art in a local school. Eventually it evolved into something deeply personal. Ann’s brother, James Robert Dowling, lost his battle with cancer in 2012. “Angels of Inspiration” is dedicated in his memory in hopes that it will bring some joy to other cancer patients.
