Lois Hole Hospital for Women
Architecture & Interiors: Dialog
Purchases, commissions and four national Calls to Artists formed this collection of 747 artworks. Eighty-five artists are represented in the collection coming from the hospital’s catchment area of Alberta, BC, Saskatchewan and the NWT.
The criteria guiding artwork selection included:
- Artwork that delights, surprises and moves us;
- Images that speak to the experiences and understandings of the patients the RAH serves;
- Images that calm the spirit, that celebrate beauty and joy – elements of whimsy and humour; and
- Compositions that compliment the aesthetic feel of the building.
