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.
