St. Mark's Hospital has a small art collection, started in the last century with the commissioning of a portrait of its founder, Frederick Salmon. Today the collection includes a wide range of contemporary art comprising painting, textiles, printmaking and photography, as well as individual works in stained glass and mosaic.
St Mark's Hospital runs an ongoing Art Project with the assistance of Artplace Art Consultancy; a small organisation which co-ordinates art projects specifically for hospitals.
Our prime objective is to provide a stimulus for the emotional and intellectual well-being of patients, staff and visitors.
Through Artplace St Mark's loans up to forty pictures, which are changed biannually. These temporary exhibitions run throughout the hospital in outpatient departments, clinics, waiting areas, wards and all core areas and corridors.
The work on exhibition is borrowed from a wide range of professional artists. Student work is also exhibited, usually as a result of specific 'link projects' organised by Artplace between the St Mark's and a college of art and design.
All the work on temporary exhibition is for sale.
