THIS PROGRAM IS NOT AVAILABLE TO THE GENERAL PUBLIC. SEE ONLINE. The inaugural exhibition at Saint-Vincent Hospital’s brand new SCREENING GALLERY. This exhibition introduces the new art gallery as it celebrates the creative eye of four photographers from Bruyère’s vast community; a patient, a security guard, and members of the Patient and Family Advisory Council, and the Communications team. The eight photographs express deeply connected themes of place, care and wonder. Demonstrating a breadth of interests and styles, they reveal each artist’s ability to observe and to present moments of critical depth. Establishing an art gallery within the hospital was one of many projects organized through Bruyère’s new Artist in Residence program. This is one part of a key goal to break down silos between ages, abilities, cultures and institutions. As part of Culture Days, this exhibition now has the potential to reach across countries, and into the rooms of citizens who are immobilized or bedbound; access the Tour for Bedside ART Fans through this hub. Great thanks to the Ontario Trillium Foundation (OTF) for their generous support. One of Canada’s leading granting foundations, the OTF awarded $108 million to 629 projects last year to build healthy and vibrant communities in Ontario.

This event runs the duration of Culture Days.
