Lynn Randolph, an artist in residence on the palliative care floor of the University of Texas MD Anderson Cancer Center in Houston, visits with dying patients and their caregivers. In a recent article in The New York Times, Randolph describes the 12 rooms there as sacred spaces. In these rooms, she shows tremendous compassion in helping people transition from life to death.
Her work is sponsored by a nonprofit organization called Collage: The Art for Cancer Network, founded by an oncologist, Dr. Jennifer Wheler. Wheler was inspired by Georgia O’Keeffe, who said, “I found I could say things with colors and shapes that I couldn’t say any other way, things I had no words for.”
