Hospital Art Program

For those who find themselves on the giving or receiving end of care – patients, families and staff – we invite local artists and collectors to help us create a visually inspiring and caring environment here at Sechelt Hospital.

The Sechelt Hospital Foundation is pleased to announce the launch of an Art Program for the hospital and its associated healthcare spaces.

This program will include the creation of a permanent collection of donated artwork to enhance our healing environments.

An Art Program Committee has been established and includes representatives from the arts, health, and community sectors.

A call for inaugural submissions is set for January 9th, 2018. For an overview of the art submission guidelines, please see our Acceptance Policy and the Deed of Gift Form.

Pioneer contributors to the Hospital Art Program collection include Shain Jackson, Donna Stewart and Kasia Krolikoswka.
