MaineGeneral Medical Center is seeking proposals from all artists living in Maine to design, create and install artwork at the 640,000-square-foot New Regional Hospital now under construction in Augusta.
The design theme for the new hospital is “A journey to wellness, healing enhanced by nature.” Art will be commissioned to reinforce that theme and create a place of comfort that promotes wellness and healing. Artwork should have Maine as its subject matter and, in particular, have a connection to central Maine.
The total project budget for up to four commissioned pieces of art is $100,000. The submission deadline is July 31, 2012. For questions about this proposal and to submit art, e-mail MaineGeneralART@smrtinc.com All materials must be in electronic format and received by e-mail.
Art will be selected for four locations: main lobby, central waiting area, café courtyard and cafeteria terrace.
