Healing Through Nature Project at LHSC
Featuring our own London Community Artists!
London Community Artists have been invited to display works of art at the Sick Children’s Hospital PICCU (Pediatric Intensive Critical Care Unit) at the Commissioners and Wellington Road location. Their vision is to bring colourful outdoor scenery into spaces that are otherwise very clinical at a time when many families are full of anxiety and unable to leave their sick child’s bedside. The Hospital has paid for the shadow boxes and canvas panel boards for our artists to create a display that rotates every 6 months.
The artwork is primarily for families to see something that promotes comfort and encouragement when they cannot leave the hospital and have limited access to the outdoors while caring for their children. The paintings will also be viewed by support staff and the various medical teams and other professionals in the PICCU as well as the children themselves who are in care. They are not available to be viewed in person by the public.
