Operation Art exhibition now open at Armory Gallery

15 Sep 2019

The annual Operation Art exhibition is back at the Armory Gallery this year, with more than 820 students across New South Wales showcasing their talents to help make sick kids feel better through the power of art.

Operation Art, an initiative of The Children’s Hospital at Westmead in association with the New South Wales Department of Education and in collaboration with Sydney Olympic Park Authority, involves school students in Kindergarten to Year 10 from more than 240 NSW schools creating artworks for children in hospital.

This year, Operation Art brings 773 artworks from students across New South Wales schools with the sole purpose of creating art to uplift patients in a hospital setting.

Among the hundreds submitted, 50 artworks will be chosen to be hung up in The Children’s Hospital at Westmead as part of their permanent art collection. An additional 100 artworks will also be chosen for display in NSW Government offices and many regional hospitals.

Operation Art will be open daily from 14 September until 16 November, 10am to 4pm, at the Amory Gallery in Sydney Olympic Park's Newington Armory.

Entry is free.
