While Robbi Wymer showcases her reflective and nature filled paintings in “The Garden.”

Level 1 will see an extended display of Then and Now by photojournalist and Sydney Children’s Hospitals Foundation resident photographer Jimmy Pozarik. Revisiting 25 patients, Pozarik’s photos provide a glimpse into the personal journeys of inspirational children and young adults. Also on display on level 1 is Sarah Wulan’s passion for children illustration as showcased in her exhibition “Happiness Is Within You and Furry Friends."

Level 2 will host a collection of work produced by patients and siblings in collaboration with LIVEWIRE, the Starlight Children’s Foundations adolescent program. “LIVEWIRE Playing Cards: The Process” shows works produced by patients and siblings which will be designed to produce a deck of playing cards for future patients to use!
