Sydney Olympic Park’s artwork makes sick kids smile

For sick children, art offers a respite from the real world of tests and treatments. Hoping that their artwork will make sick kids smile, almost 900 school children around the state have let loose their creativity, entering artworks into this year’s Operation Art Exhibition.

The Operation Art program has invited kindergarten to year 10 students from schools across New South Wales to create artworks for young patients at The Children’s Hospital at Westmead. Fifty artworks will be chosen from the entries, and will become a part of the hospital’s permanent art collection. Another 150 artworks will be displayed in regional hospitals.
