  • Brief Description

    Usona Institute is seeking a well-qualified artist to create wall artwork near the spa lobby and therapy wing stair at the new headquarters in Fitchburg, WI which will be completed in 2023. This art will serve as a therapeutic and healing tool. The Usona Institute will also serve as an intake center that focuses on alleviating depression through the use of psilocybin and similar medicines in people for whom current medical treatments fall short. The Institute was created shortly after the founder was inspired by the meaningful impact that a psilocybin study at Johns Hopkins University had on a friend suffering from cancer. Usona Institute would like artwork that both complements the building and serves as a unique, memorable piece. The artwork should inspire healing, growth, and harmony. The Usona Therapy Spa will be one of the most frequently visited parts of the Institute's campus, making this an ideal location for a high-visibility art installation.  This proposed work of art may span up to 17' 8" wide by 9'  6" high the maximum wall area available. This artwork will ideally engage the spa guest and positively reinforce Usona's experiential mission to inspire, heal, and facilitate deeper life connections. Please see commission document for additional information and application guidelines.
