Brand New Facility for Women & Children’s Hospital of Buffalo!
Construction was completed for the new John R. Oishei Children’s Hospital located in the medical corridor in downtown Buffalo. The state of the art facility brings the utmost in comprehensive care to all of WNY. As part of its capital campaign, The Women & Children’s Hospital of Buffalo Foundation partnered with Faces of Buffalo Community Art Mosaics and invited our community to create smiling self-portrait artworks. Portrait submission ended on Aug 15, 2016. Over 16,000 colorful smiles united to create six digital mosaics made from thousands of self-portraits drawn by patients and community members in WNY.

Up close you see each colorful face; from a distance they unite to create one image! These history making mosaics make up a wall of smiles to help lighten the burden of a visit to the hospital. Children & adults have made a personal investment in the new hospital through simple, creative art.
