The Project
The goal of Envision Saint Agnes Hospital is to create a public art installation, designed by Saint Augustine’s University students, that recognizes this important Raleigh landmark.

A Cornerstone of Regional History
Built in 1909 on Saint Augustine’s campus, this four-story structure was the second home of Saint Agnes Hospital (1896 -1961). Known as “The Healing Place”, Saint Agnes served the African-American community for 65 years providing both nurses training and medical care.

Public Art Works!
The project will include the installation of a new fence along the Oakwood Avenue boundary of the Hospital site. The new fence will be embellished with SAU student artwork that celebrates Saint Agnes.

The Envision Saint Agnes Hospital Project is presented through the fiscal sponsorship of VAE Raleigh.
