Gallery & Exhibition Program
The WCH Foundation’s Arts in Health program coordinates four art galleries located in the Women’s and Children’s Hospital.
The ‘Heart Galleries’ bring visual art to the Women’s and Children’s Hospital community to provide patients and their families spaces of distraction and entertainment, helping to alleviate the stresses of having a child in hospital. The gallery spaces are just one way our Arts in Health program helps to achieve better health outcomes for patients and their families.
New exhibitions are installed every three months and predominately feature the works of up-and-coming South Australian artists.
In addition to the four Heart Galleries, our Arts in Health team work closely with the Hospital community to deliver ‘pop-up exhibitions’.
Please note: Due to COVID-19 there are visitor restrictions in the Hospital. To remain updated on this information, click here
These are our exhibitions that are currently on display.
We are Play Therapy! | An exhibition by the paediatric patients at the Women’s and Children’s Hospital
Our Arts in Health program provided a canvas and art materials to each paediatric ward to create an artwork. Play Therapists worked with patients to create a theme and produce a wonderful art piece!
Location: Orange Heart Gallery | Level 1, Zone E – Samuel Way walkway.
