Celebrate. Create. Connect: The RCH150 Aboriginal Art Project

Acknowledging our First Nations communities is an integral part of The Royal Children’s Hospital’s 150th anniversary. To mark the beginning of National Reconciliation Week, the RCH Foundation has commissioned two permanent artworks created by Indigenous artists for the RCH.

Celebrate. Create. Connect: The RCH150 Aboriginal Art Project is a centrepiece project of RCH150 and has been made possible thanks to the generous support of Mr Ken Harrison AM and Mrs Jill Harrison OAM.

Adelaide muralist, Elizabeth Close (Pitjantjatjara and Yankunytjatjara) will collaborate with an emerging Wurundjeri artist, Samantha Roberts, to design and deliver a four-storey mural which will bookend the north and south façades of the hospital building. This is scheduled for completion in late 2020.
