Women on Walls at RCSI: 8 new exciting portraits added to RCSI Heritage Art Collections

Women on Walls at RCSI, in partnership with Accenture, is a campaign that seeks to make women leaders visible through a series of commissioned portraits that will create a lasting cultural legacy for Ireland. In March 2018, artists were invited to submit a proposal to Business to Arts, project managers of the initiative. A selection committee identified six artists that were commissioned. The group of artists have worked with RCSI Heritage Collections team to research their subjects and complete the portraits. These portraits will recognise the pioneering achievements of eight extraordinary women and enhance the visibility of historical female leaders in healthcare. They now hang in the Board Room of RCSI on St Stephen’s Green in Dublin’s city centre.
