RANKED #10 IN THE NATION! – SUNSHINE ARTIST MAGAZINE 2016
Name of Call: Gateway to Downtown – Odessa, TX
The Odessa Council for the Arts & Humanities (OCA&H) invites professional artists or artist teams to submit qualifications to design and fabricate a significant piece to enhance the structure on the corner of 8th street and Maple avenue, know colloquially as the ‘Cloth World Sign.’ This piece will be an addition to the City of Odessa’s public art collection.
University Health System is pleased to announce a call for artists to be considered for inclusion in our new clinic, The Dr. Robert L. M. Hilliard Center. Dr. Hilliard, who passed away in 2014, had deep and profound ties to San Antonio’s East Side community where he practiced throughout his life — delivering more than 14,000 babies. He also had deep ties with University Health System and the San Antonio Housing Authority, the two organizations that came together to build this state-of-the-art medical facility on the city’s East Side.
Artists in this call are being considered to create a hanging or wall mural art installation for a large two story atrium lobby that will greet patients and the public in the new space. The 12,000 square foot building will have general health care outpatient services, with focus on pediatric and women’s health services.
Artists are asked to create a welcoming, colorful, engaging art work that related to any of the following: human form, nature, color, cultural diversity, abstract shapes, and history. The goal within our University Health System, “Salud-Arte: Art of Healing” program is to create a peaceful, positive distraction environment for patients and their families.
Installation and completion is scheduled for the week of November 13, 2017.
