New Titles

New Titles, an exhibition of additions to the art collection in University Hospital Waterford, was launched in March 2004. Since its inception, WHAT has been committed to developing a collection of high quality contemporary artwork for permanent display throughout University Hospital Waterford.  The collection is a cornerstone of the work of WHAT, enabling it to fulfil its aim of enhancing the healing environment.  Visitors to the hospital are immediately struck by the wealth of artworks on view in the public corridors, in waiting spaces, and in places of treatment and care. 

The development of the collection has been made possible by the fundraising efforts of the committee of the Waterford Healing Arts Trust and by the generosity of art collectors and artists who have donated works to the collection. The Artist-in-Residence scheme which has been in operation since 1994, has also contributed to the development of the collection with outgoing Artists-in-Residence donating part of their body of work to the collection.

These aquisitions have increased considerably over the past few years. New Titles includes works by Kathleen Delaney, Tom Molloy, Eileen McDonagh, Christine O'Morchoe, Maria Gallway, Karen Colbert, Marie Lynch, DJ Collins and Boyer Phelan.
