Established in London in 1959, Paintings in Hospitals now works across England, Wales and Northern Ireland. They have developed a diverse art collection of almost 4,000 artworks and, as well as four artwork loan schemes, deliver art engagement projects and creative activities.
Paintings in Hospitals do more than simply put paintings in hospitals. They believe that art has an important role to play in the healing process.
The artwork outside the learning and resource centre in York Hospital and in the corridor downstairs is part of the ‘open store’ for Paintings in Hospitals where people can come to select artworks to loan.
