Brief Description

Cone Health and the Community Foundation of Greater Greensboro’s (CFGG) Public Art Endowment (PAE) are commissioning an iconic piece of art. The work will go in a large circular area between the Cone Health Heart & Vascular Center and the Women’s & Children’s Center at Moses Cone Hospital. The budget is $300,000 for the project with $75,000 from PAE and $225,000 to be raised by Cone Health Philanthropy. The two entities are looking for an artist to create a work that is site-specific, thought-provoking, hope-filled and visually engaging. It must connect with visitors and patients. In recent years, Cone Health has put emphasis on placing works of art in its buildings, and the PAE has been changing Greensboro’s public landscape with art projects since 2008. The goal is to have the art in place by the end of 2022.
