The Operation Art program provides a forum for schools and students to demonstrate their visual arts achievements through exhibitions at the Armory Gallery, Sydney Olympic Park and the Art Gallery of New South Wales.
This year the Operation Art exhibition showcases 630 artworks from students in Kindergarten to Year 10 across the state. Fifty of these artworks have been selected by a team of judges to Tour NSW regional art galleries before being gifted to The Children’s Hospital at Westmead as part of their collection, promoting health and wellbeing through art.
To support Operation Art, Sydney Olympic Park will display the artworks in key areas around the Park.
Entry to Operation Art is free. When you’re at the Armory Gallery, you can also see the longest continuous art gallery wall in Australia and take advantage of some of the other facilities in the precinct. For example, you can ride a heritage train, a segway or a bike in the surrounding area.
Sydney Olympic Park is located about 17 kilometres west of the CBD, with the gallery on Jamieson Street. You can get there by car via the A4 (and there’s onsite parking available), or you can take public transport with train, bus and ferry options available.
