The Art Selection Committee for this project has chosen eight (8) sites for artwork. They would like to commission murals for two of those sites and purchase framed 2D artwork for six sites. Note: the ceiling height in the entire building is 8’6″ and the top of a chair rail that runs through all the waiting areas is at 37 inches.
Sites 1 & 2 — the Main Clinic Lobby and the WIC Lobby. There is a curved band of wall above the in-take windows in the lobby of the Main Clinic. This upper area (29 inches high x 21 feet wide) is a
very prominent element in the relatively small space. The Committee would like to commission a long mural artwork for this area. The mural could be either a painting or a photograph on canvas which would be applied to the surface like wallpaper.
There is a similar band above the in-take window in the WIC Lobby, though this band is flat and not as wide (29 inches high x 12 feet wide.
The Committee would like to commission one artist to create murals for both of these areas. They are requesting to see examples of previous artwork by artists interested in creating artwork for these two areas. Because the wall color is light beige,they prefer imagery that is colorful and serenely beautiful or that is colorful and lively.
For the rest of the sites, the Committee would like to purchase existing artwork.
The Committee is open to any style, subject matter, or theme that is appropriate to this kind of public space, though the desirability of reflecting the area’s landscape and culture was discussed as well as the clinic’s clients — primarily women and children.
