Grey Bruce Health Services is hosting its first ever juried art project to help celebrate Canada’s 150th anniversary. This art project is called ‘Momentos’ and is asking that all submissions reflect a personal ‘Canadian Moment’ and include a short 150-word reflection.

Following a juried selection process, artwork will be hung throughout GBHS’ six hospitals for one year, for all to enjoy. In addition, a commemorative booklet will be created as a memento, a keepsake of this celebration, and serve as a reminder of the healing power of art.

“We are looking to the artists of Grey Bruce to submit unique and diverse artwork, that will be used to brighten the hallways of our six hospitals, encourage patient recovery and represent the true diversity of our communities,” said Lance Thurston, GBHS President and CEO. “It is our hope to receive submissions from all age groups, our indigenous community members, patients, volunteers and visitors.”
