Free Clinic

A warm-toned watercolor painting of a crowd in a medical waiting room. On the left, brown-skinned figures wait in a line that extends into the background toward the right. Other brown-skinned figures sit on a bench in the foreground. The figures are represented in a variety of ways that indicate physical injury—some have crutches and others wear white bandages. Scientific and medical instruments are painted on the walls.
