Saint-Vincent Hospital

60 Cambridge Street North

Ottawa, ON

Designed for accessibility, safety and the imagination, Be moved by Art at Bruyère offers a month of creative community interaction.

Bruyère is an academic hospital organization in Ottawa with multiple sites including Saint-Vincent, Ottawa’s only Complex Continuing Care hospital.

Respecting the health conditions of Saint-Vincent’s citizenry and the current Covid-19 context, our hub recognizes two kinds of art appreciators: the general public and the “Saint-Vincent public”. Currently, the general public cannot enter Saint-Vincent and the patients of Saint-Vincent cannot visit museums, galleries or outdoor art installations. With this in mind, we have created four programs.

1. Local Worlds: Site, Space, Society, Science. A photography exhibit for the Saint-Vincent community. Physically located within Saint-Vincent in a new gallery space. (Not accessible to the general public.)

2. Walk’n’Roll ART Hunt. An art hunt within Saint-Vincent with curated pieces and questions for reflection. (Not accessible to the general public.)

3. ART Tour for Bedside Art Fans. An online exposition of the art of Saint-Vincent. A different way to access the art at Saint-Vincent for patients unable to Walk’n’Roll. Also accessible to the wider Saint-Vincent community such as family and friends who are now limited in their physical access to the building. (Accessible to the general public through the internet.)

4. Two-Metre Tour, an outdoor, self-guided scavenger hunt for "ARTful Distance Markers". An art hunt that encourages the public to cycle or drive between the three main Bruyère sites, searching out the ARTful distance markers. These markers indicate Two Metres, or Six Feet, a distance deeply known to all of us now. (General public welcome.)

Discover, discuss, appreciate, laugh or scowl. Ponder over a range of visual art objects, installations and exhibits, contemporary and traditional in nature. This includes include new 2D and 3D works created by patients and care-givers within Bruyère’s new Artist-in-Residence program, curated shows of new photography and existing art, and playful ground-murals.
