  • Brief Description

    The Louisiana Percent for Art program invites professional artists or artist teams to submit qualifications for the creation of a permanent, site-specific exterior installation for the LSU Health Shreveport Center for Medical Education. The envisioned artwork should thematically convey the mission of the facility, centered around the principles of "Teach, Heal, and Discover."


    The proposal selected by the Committee will include an all-inclusive budget of $160,000 to cover all costs associated with the project and commensurate with the intended scale, including but not limited to research, professional consultations, formal reports from licensed structural and electrical engineers where appropriate, a long-term care and maintenance report from a licensed professional conservator, materials, fabrication, transportation, travel, insurance, foundation, installation, and photography and documentation of the artwork.


    This call for artists is open to professional artists 18 and over, regardless of race, color, religion, national origin, gender identification, military status, sexual orientation, marital status, or physical ability. Artist teams may apply and must designate one artist as the lead contact. Examples of work submitted must be original, recently completed artwork (within the last ten years). The application, including all examples of work and supporting documents, is considered the artist's official "submission." If any information submitted by the artist or artist's representative, including all supporting documents, is found fraudulent, the submission will be disqualified.
