Brief Description

The Los Angeles County Department of Arts and Culture's Civic Art Program (Civic Art) seeks an artist or artist team to create an artwork to contribute to the Child and Family Wellbeing Center at the Martin Luther King, Jr. Medical Center campus. The MLK, Jr. Child and Family Wellbeing Center will house a medical clinic for children who have experienced abuse, or are children in the foster system, as well as an autism clinic, child psychiatry services, and a Family Justice Center. The commissioned artwork must be sensitive to the complex historical and political contexts that define Willowbrook and the Martin Luther King, Jr. Medical Center campus. The artist(s) should foster a sense of community and humanity, be innovative in their approach, and create something to be experienced by patients, staff, and visitors alike. https://www.lacountyarts.org/opportunities/civic-artists-request-qualifications/permanent-artwork-mlk-jr-child-and-family
