I chair the art procurement committee charged with art acquisitions for the incredible new Ronald McDonald House BC of which I have attached a complete description.
We are looking for donations of art that provide inspiration and hope for the families of young patients who need specialized treatment offered at BC Children’s hospital. These families will be coming from throughout BC and the Yukon.
The donations can be from artists or collectors.
We are looking for artwork which encompasses the theme of each pavilion.
The four pavilions are:
- Mountain House
- River House
- Forest House
- Beach house
As a committee we feel that artwork that is non-figurative is preferred.
If you are interested in making a submission, please contact me directly by phone or email.
Final selections will be made by the committee.
If you have any questions please do not hesitate to contact me.

Thank you for your help,
Ronald McDonald House® BC
is a vital resource to the residents of BC and the Yukon and provides a home-away from-home for families whose seriously ill children are receiving medical treatment at BC Children’s Hospital.
Why Donate Artwork?
The positive and therapeutic impact of art on those in distress is well documented. While families are here to focus on treatment and care for their child, our goal is to ensure the positive and hopeful experience we create improves their psychological state, which is critical to dealing with the impacts of serious illness and a key component in better outcomes for patients.
