The Students' Art Gallery at Hotel Dieu Hospital in Kingston, Ontario, Canada, was established by the hospital in 1985 for the benefit of families whose children require hospital treatment. The first of its kind in all of North America, the gallery expanded several times during the first decade and is now comprised of 100 pictures.
The exemplary artworks are showcased at a comfortable eye-level in the Children's Outpatient Centre and KidsInclusive Centre for Child & Youth Development near the Main Lobby. New exhibitions are installed three times a year. Paintings, drawings and multi-media constructions are submitted by elementary and secondary schools in the Limestone District School Board and the Algonquin and Lakeshore Catholic District School Board. Contributors also include Kingston Christian School as well as community programmes.
Approximately 75,000 people walk through the gallery every year!
