Permanent Collection

Paintings, sculptures, prints, photography and more can be seen everywhere throughout the Hospital, from the welcoming foyer to treatment rooms and wards.

Visitors to the Hospital can enjoy over 900 different works from our permanent collection, welcoming you as you travel through our halls and wards. Art is the perfect stabiliser to what might be an anxious experience.

Alongside works by renowned artists including Del Kathryn Barton, Robert Dickerson, Eileen Napaltjarri, Elizabeth Cummings, Alan Jones, Jasper Knight, Rodney Pople, Angus MacDonald, Jane Guthleben and David Bromley, we also feature special artworks created by our patients and their siblings.

Our collection has been amassed through donations and philanthropy. It is governed by a collection policy, and registered as a public collection with the Cultural Gifts Program, administered by The Department of Communications and the Arts.
