ENVISION Saint Agnes Hospital, an art exhibition sponsored by St. Augustine University and the Office of Raleigh Arts, will be on display at the Miriam Preston Block Art Gallery in the Avery C. Upchurch Government Complex, 222 W. Hargett St., Raleigh, NC 27602

Following a day of art making at the site of Saint Agnes Hospital this past April, we are happy to present works by 31 artists. This project is meant to show how art and collaboration can envision a living history and constructive future for sites that might otherwise be forgotten or even worse meet their demise in a city that is growing so rapidly. This exhibition brings awareness to the rich history of the site while showcasing the broad talents of community artists.

Thirty percent of all exhibition sales will go toward creating a student-designed public artwork that acknowledges St. Agnes Hospital. 

NC State College of Design students participating in the graduate Public Interest Design studio will present their work that was produced in collaboration with St. Augustine’s Professor Linda Dallas and her art students. The work is an exploration of what can be done today, to revitalize the historic landmark of Saint Agnes Hospital. 

Faculty Advisor: Associate Professor of Architecture Bryan Bell
