Brief Description

The mission of Children’s Hospital and Medical Center is to improve the life of every child –through exceptional clinical care, research, education, and advocacy. CHMC is currently building the Hubbard Center for Children, an innovative addition to the campus, and plans to work with artists and teams to commission and curate artwork throughout the building, balancing various scales and budgets. This site is 2-stories tall and spans the length of the windows, which look out onto Dodge St, one of the busiest streets in Omaha. The committee envisions a mobile that incorporates color, refracted or reflected light or perhaps even dichroic materials (glass or 3M material). The artwork should unify the building, lead people through the space with a sense of curiosity and wonderment, and offer a welcoming environment where people are at ease to sit at length. Suggested budget range between $30,000 – $150,000, to include all anticipated expenses.
