  • Brief Description

    University Health’s Salud-Arte: Art of Healing program seeks an artist or artist team to design and create site-specific artwork for the garage bridge of the new Women’s & Children’s Hospital at University Health’s Medical Center campus. The building is set to open in early 2023. The commissioned artwork will thoughtfully respond to this unique context in a way consistent with the mission of University Health. The vision of University Health’s Salud-Arte: Art of Healing program is to use art to inspire healing, compassion, hope and trust. We also aim to reflect the community, improve the experience of our patients and visitors, and communicate our important mission through art and design enhancements while being good stewards of our financial and natural resources. The commissioned work for the garage bridge of the Women’s & Children’s Hospital will be in keeping with the mission statements above. The artist may elect to enhance the space with metal, colored film, light, sound, and/or sculpture. No artwork may be affixed to the ceiling of the garage bridge. Please review approved materials, selection criteria, and the location description provided below.
