Operation Art

Saturday 30 June 2018 to Sunday 19 August 2018

Operation Art is the premier state wide visual arts exhibition for students from Kindergarten to Year 10. It is a unique contemporary children’s exhibition which encourages students to create artworks for children in hospital. The exhibition focuses on creating a positive environment to aid the healing and recovery process of young patients.

The Operation Art touring exhibition comprises 50 selected artworks from the 2017 Operation Art Main Exhibition. These works will tour regionally and be on display at Blue Mountains City Art Gallery. They will then be given to the Children's Hospital at Westmead as part of their permanent collection.

Operation Art is an initiative of NSW Department of Education and The Children’s Hospital at Westmead.

Operation Art acknowledges the generous support of ANSTO [Australian Nuclear Science and Technology Organisation] whose funding supports Operation Art's Touring Exhibitions.
