Cancer Clinic grew out of my experience as a volunteer in the Neo-Plastic Clinic in Mt. Sinai Hospital, New York City. It shows the conditions under which patients without health coverage were given medical treatment. Working with a social worker, I had developed an art therapy program for clinic patients who were primarily African American and Hispanic women from the Harlem community. Conditions in the hospital have improved somewhat since these works were conceived.
