Past GOSH Arts commissions include the Lullaby Factory by Studio Weave, a magical installation made up of Whistful Fillment Filaments and Satellite Lilters on the façade of the Southwood Building; and the Nature Trail by Jason Bruges Studio which leads patients through an interactive, animal inhabited woodland on Level 3 of the Morgan Stanley Clinical Building.

We want the art around the hospital to inspire the imaginations of our patients and families and help to create engaging, welcoming and calming environments. Many of the artists we work with will be developing exciting ways of involving GOSH patients in their creative process, so please look out for opportunities to take part in the next two years.

If you would like to give us feedback about any of the artworks you see around the hospital or would like to be involved in helping to commission new artworks please contact gosharts@gosh.nhs.uk.
