Winter Art Exhibitions
These exhibitions demonstrate the generosity and creativity of the artists who have developed them for our special audience. They also depict the talents of children who have been inspired to help support the Hospital.
Sydney Children’s Hospitals Foundation Art Program works collaboratively with the Hospital to deliver creative exhibitions to create a vibrant, reassuring and colourful place of healing and culture for patients, families and staff.
Unfortunately, due to the restrictions put in place to manage COVID-19 and to protect the staff and patients, we are unable to invite members of the public to view these displays in person.
Many of the artworks on display are available to purchase, with a portion of each sale donated to the Foundation. If you would like to purchase one of these incredible pieces, please contact the Art Program by phone 1800770122 or email email@example.com.
A Little Piece of Me
Andrew Christie with families from Palliative Care teams
A collaborative art project between artist Andrew Christie, the Art Program and Palliative Care teams at Sydney Children’s Hospitals Network and John Hunter Children’s Hospital.
This collection celebrates the many influences that shape the identities of developing children and young people who are supported by Paediatric Palliative care teams. Participants submitted a portrait of their child, and photos of all the people who have helped shape their life experiences. These are then transformed into a photo mosaic pixel portrait. The exhibition will be held concurrently with displays at Sydney Children’s Hospital, Randwick, The Children’s Hospital at Westmead, Bear Cottage Manly and John Hunter Children’s Hospital.
“Cartoons are vital at any age. They shape people’s outlook on the world, encourage adventure, promote family and most importantly, they teach us that superheros really do exist! A pop culture exhibition, Melting Pop, takes elements of your favourite cartoon characters and ‘melts’ them together. The end results are vibrant, uniform, artworks with no start or finish, artworks that allow your eyes to wander and your imagination to run wild.
