'Metamorphosis'

Share

City:

Eligibility:

Public Art Commission

Liverpool University Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust

Aintree University Hospital -Main Entrance

Liverpool University Hospitals Foundation Trust (LUHFT) invites applications from artists to create a high quality, innovative and thought provoking piece of public art. The proposed new artwork will be displayed outside the reconfigured main entrance and will complement the existing           commissioned works on display around the Aintree site.

Project Brief

The artwork must:-

Relate to the overall theme of the commission

Be site specific and weather durable

Create a sense of “welcome”

Reflect Aintree hospital's place as an anchor institution

Commission Theme

The overarching theme is “Metamorphosis”

Artists are invited to explore this theme in any medium providing they adhere to the project brief. We have chosen this theme to reflect the transformation and continual change within the hospital  and the hospital estate. There is a symbiotic and collaborative relationship between staff members of every discipline who when working together exemplify the phrase;           ‘the whole becomes greater than the sum of its parts’.  Whilst there is considerable latitude within the brief this will be a very prominent piece of art at our main entrance and will be the first welcome to the hospital.

Commission Budget £10-15K

For the proposed piece the quoted amount should cover :-

The workshop period, any inspirational or engagement visits to the site, transport costs, materials and the development and creation of the final work.

Installation will be the responsibility of Aintree Hospital maintenance team guided by a risk         assessment and method statement which includes detailed installation plans from the                  commissioned artist(s).

Aintree is an extremely busy hospital site with high patient throughput. Maintaining a clean and safe environment is important therefore all artwork must be robust, easy to clean and maintain.

Commission Deadlines

The closing date for submissions 5pm Friday October 30th 2020.

Anticipated installation date 30th March 2021

All submissions will be reviewed by an Arts Steering Group and shortlisted candidates will be     invited to a short interview before a judging panel at Aintree Hospital site in mid-November. We envisage the successful artist(s) to begin work immediately with the artwork ready for installation in March/April 2021.

If selected for commission there will be consultation, engagement and participation with the         Estates and Facilities team at Aintree Hospital.

Artist Specification

We are looking to recruit artists with the following qualities:

A track record of producing high quality artwork and meeting deadlines

An ability to inspire and to take inspiration from others

Experience of working with a wide range of audiences

An understanding of site specific public art

A sensitivity to the lived experiences of hospital users when developing and delivering artworks

An ability to deliver high quality and engaging workshops

Eligibility:

OVERVIEW

The West Des Moines Public Arts Advisory Commission and Parks and Recreation Department invite regional artists (Iowa, Illinois, Minnesota, Missouri, Nebraska, Wisconsin, South Dakota) to submit an Artwork Application to participate in the 9th annual Art on the Campus public art exhibit. Art on the Campus is a temporary outdoor exhibit, displayed on the West Des Moines City/School Campus from April to November each year. 

EXHIBIT DETAILS

Selected artists are paid a $2,000 stipend for the use of their artwork. 

A selection panel will choose up to 12 original works of art for installation.

The artist retains ownership of their work and agrees to loan it to the exhibit.  During the exhibit, the artwork will be covered under the City’s insurance for the retail value of the artwork; however, artists must also carry standard liability insurance coverage. Artists are required to provide proof of liability insurance if selected. 

A People’s Choice vote will be taken throughout the duration of the exhibit. When the exhibit is complete, the People’s Choice artwork will be named and shared with the public, and the People’s Choice winner will receive a $500 award.

A recognition event will be held at which members of the community, WDM City Council, WDM Parks and Recreation Advisory Board, and featured artists are invited to celebrate 2021 Art on the Campus exhibit.  Invited guests will have the opportunity to view the selected works. Artists are asked to attend and give a brief oral description of their artwork. More details to come.

The Art on the Campus exhibit will be promoted in the local media. Marketing efforts will include but not be limited to:

· An article in WDM Magazine (direct mailed to all WDM households and businesses)

· News and information on the WDM City Web Site (www.wdm.iowa.gov)

· WDM Parks and Recreation Department’s Facebook, Instagram and Twitter accounts

The Art on the Campus exhibit is a listed feature on the Otocast app, a mobile audio guide. Selected artists are required to work with Otocast staff to record a short narrative about their artwork.

*The City of West Des Moines reserves the right to photograph and reproduce images of the artwork on exhibit for promotional and educational purposes. 

EXHIBIT LOCATION

The West Des Moines City/School Campus is a centrally located area that is home to several facilities utilized by the community including an elementary school, freshmen high school, the WDM City Hall, the WDM Public Library and the WDM School District’s Learning Resource Center and the new Jamie Hurd Amphitheater. A half-mile walking trail encircles the centrally located pond. Selected works will be installed on 4’ x 4’ concrete pads that are located around the pond and adjacent to the walking trail. 

INSTALLATION OF ARTWORK

Artists are responsible for all costs, equipment, and labor necessary for the delivery, installation and removal of their work and assume all risk and damage to their work before and during installation and during and after removal. Work not appropriate for installation onto a 4’x4’ concrete base will not be allowed. Lighting and power will not be provided at the artwork locations. The artist shall affix their artwork to the concrete pad in such a way that non-authorized removal would not be possible. The City of West Des Moines will not provide labor nor equipment for install.     

SALE OF ARTWORK

Each selected piece of artwork must have a pre-determined purchase value or sale price that is set by the artist. If someone desires to purchase one of the displayed artworks, 15% of the sales price will be paid to the City of West Des Moines. These funds will provide future funding of public art in West Des Moines. The $2,000 stipend provided to the artist is not part of any sales transaction. Artwork must remain on display throughout the duration of the exhibition.

ARTWORK CRITERIA

All artwork must be the original work of the artist (in concept, composition, and execution) and suitable for outdoor public display.
