The Health and Hospital Corporation of Marion County, Indiana, d.b.a.Wishard Hospital, with Blackburn Architects, Inc. as the Art Project Manager, invites US-based professional artists over the age of 18 to submit their qualifications for artwork design and/or fabrication opportunities at the new main Wishard Hospital complex, currently under construction. All media accepted. Project opportunities may include large-scale suspended sculpture(s), free-standing sculpture, art terrazzo floors, large wall-based artwork(s), architectural-scale art glass, architectural or landscape enhancements, wall-based 2D (e.g. paintings, mosaics) or 3D (e.g. relief carvings, wall-hung sculpture) opportunities, or the licensing of images to be used as part of an interior finish. Project budgets will cover a wide range. Based on the responses to this RFQ, artists may be offered compensation to prepare and submit a proposal for a specific project site or may be directly selected to develop an artwork in concert with the project team. The intent of any project(s) commissioned from this RFQ is to complement the site, architecture and interior design program of the new hospital complex in creating an environment that makes Wishard's patients feel welcome, facilitates their healing, and reinforces Wishard's mission and community identity.
