SOUTH KINGSTOWN – Art by students at Broad Rock Middle School and Curtis Corner Middle School is now on view at South County Hospital.

The hospital has been displaying student art at the hospital for 11 years.

Carol DiFrancesco, a hospital volunteer who coordinated the art display, said the art was originally displayed in patient rooms, but after the hospital was renovated, the display moved to a corridor.
“We frame up to 30 paintings and hang them,” DiFrancesco said.

She said the display is made possible thanks to donations of frames and discounts at craft store A.C. Moore.
She recalled seeing a patient pause at the artwork.

“I saw a very sick man being wheeled somewhere on a gurney,” she said. “When he saw the art he reached up toward it. He said it made his day.”
