Broomfield Hospital public art programme causes controversy

Some links to articles about the £400k public art programme at Broomfield Hospital in Essex....

A little film: 

It even made the Daily Mail! Under the headline '
Hospital splashes out £421k on 'modern art' – while trying to slash £40m from its budget'

Evening Standard

Dare I mention the Per Cent for Art programme and that, for a £148m build programme, they should have spent more than three times as much? Also  no separation is recognised between the capital and revenue funding......never mind though, eh, art is always an easy target. Whether any of it is any good is another question.
