Several series of works were selected to fill the vast length of the hospital’s main corridor. The hospital is a major focal point of the community, and is located nearby to the famous Werribee Zoo. Art Strategies Australia sourced a beautiful series of wild animal photos from the zoo, and custom printed these images for the spaces. Other works included large-scale flower series’ and original oil paintings of the local landscape.
