Brief Description

Eastern Virginia Medical School seeks to commission an artist to design and create artwork for the LD
Terrace at the new Waitzer Hall building in Norfolk, Virginia. EASTERN VIRGINIA MEDICAL SCHOOL is a campus of scientists, researchers,
learners, and healers, and Dr. Britt reflects these ideals. The campus aesthetic is modern, clean, collegial
and authoritative, and the sculpture should resonate with this brand while showing creativity and
imagination. The work should be clean, welcoming, forward-thinking and purposeful. We hope the
figure will become a suitable icon for the diversity and inclusion efforts on campus, and appropriately
honor the distinguished work of Dr. Britt. The artist must hire a Virginia licensed contractor to install the artwork. The selected artist may be asked
to present an educational workshop to the community. Deadline to apply: August 3, 2020 at 2:00 PM EST.
