Every year, schools across New South Wales are invited to participate in Operation Art, an initiative of The Children’s Hospital at Westmead in association with the New South Wales Department of Education. The Operation Art program provides a forum for schools and students to demonstrate their visual arts achievements through exhibitions at the Armory Gallery, Sydney Olympic Park and the Art Gallery of New South Wales.
This year the Operation Art exhibition showcases 630 artworks from students in Kindergarten to Year 10 across the state. Of these artworks, fifty have been selected by a team of judges to Tour NSW regional art galleries before being gifted to The Children’s Hospital at Westmead as part of their collection, promoting health and wellbeing through art.
To support Operation Art, Sydney Olympic Park will be displaying the artworks at key areas around the Park.
