NYC Health + Hospitals Arts in Medicine (AIM), with support from the Laurie M. Tisch Illumination Fund and the Mayor's Fund to Advance New York City, is seeking a Request for Qualifications (RFQ) for lead artists to work on the NYC Health + Hospitals Community Murals Project (CMP). Continuing the tradition established in the 1930s when the Works Progress Administration supported hundreds of murals across New York City’s public hospitals, the CMP will connect artists and local community members to re-imagine hospitals and promote greater neighborhood wellness.

Visual artists will engage with patients, staff, and local residents to create an integrated internal or external mural at selected NYC Health + Hospitals facilities. The aim of the program is to use a collaborative mural making process as a tool to build trust and engagement between the hospitals and their communities, build neighborhood pride, and reduce the stigma associated with hospitals through community building activities.

Proposed themes can include:

Heart & Soul
Health Care Heroes
​Power of Community
Thrive
Grit

NYC Health + Hospitals Arts in Medicine anticipates selecting nine (9) professional visual artists to work closely with nine (9) NYC Health + Hospitals facilities to engage staff and community members in a participatory design process and to create and install nine (9) health themed murals. Murals will be installed in both internal and external locations at the facilities, all of which will be highly visible public areas. This collaboration will last from February 1, 2021 through July 31, 2021. This RFQ is soliciting nine (9) professional visual artists that have a portfolio of work executing large-scale murals, have connections with the boroughs and communities of New York City, and experience facilitating workshops and events that engage diverse communities in the creative process.

Project Budget:
The Project Budget is $8,000.00 per location for artist fees including design services, community engagement, site preparation, fabrication, travel, and installation. NYC Health + Hospitals AIM will provide any necessary supplies, permits, insurance, and documentation. NYC Health + Hospitals Arts in Medicine Department will execute a deliverables-based MOU valued at $8,000.00 with the lead artist. Lead artists will be paid 1/2 upfront, and 1/2 upon completion. NYC Health + Hospitals Arts in Medicine Department will cover all costs related to art supplies and additional materials for workshops and community events, equipment for the installation, special insurance, permits for mural sites and other relevant costs relating to the production of the murals.

Who May Apply:
Professional visual artists or artist teams working in any media, legally authorized to work in the United States, and who are at least 18 years of age, are eligible to apply.

2021 Muckenthaler Cultural Center Artist-in-Residence Application Information

The Muckenthaler Center is currently accepting applications for their Artist-in-Residence for 2021.  Artists of any and all disciplines and backgrounds are encouraged to apply.  Special consideration is given to artists who live and/or work in Orange County, California

To apply send an email to AIR@TheMuck.org containing the following information:  

  • A brief history of the artist's career.  It is not essential to have a long prestigious resume. Both well-established and emerging artists are eligible. But it is vital that we know who you are.
  • A detailed description of how you would spend your residency year including: 
    • What artistic projects you would like to create and how it fits our mission statement.
    • How you would integrate into existing Muck programming (Yes, that will require a bit of research) 
    • Why would your residency benefit you, The Muck, and the Community?

Our two most recent Artists in Residence have been:

2019 Lara Wilson - Choreographer and Leader of The Assembly.  Lara and her group spent all of 2019 choreographing and workshopping on our stage, a world premiere dance piece reflecting a new view of women in society.  Her residency included rehearsals and workshops open to the public, and culminated in a public performance on our main stage.

2020 Katharine Zaun - Poet and Educator.  Katharine has used her residency year to create a series of classes and workshops for our community.  She also contributes a monthly poem that gets distributed to 60,000 people through our outreach.  Her residency culminated in a community-based found poetry project mural that has been featured in the OC Register and the LA Times.

One last word of encouragement.  We don't care if you're a muralist who only paints miniatures, or a punk-rock theremin player, or a puppet show documentarian.  We are searching for ingenuity, dedication, and the ability to integrate into our culture.

A Vanished Sea (Without a Trace)

City:

Eligibility:

Climate Art and Bridgepoint Rye, in collaboration with Sussex Wildlife Trust, are delighted to announce a call for applications from artists, creative practitioners, and environmental researchers to work on a site-responsive project during a three-month residency at Bridgepoint Creative Centre in Rye, East Sussex.Participants are invited to respond to the residency’s theme of transience, outlined below. Each applicant should clearly indicate how, during the three months of the programme, they will engage with the local community and connect with the ecological landscape of Rye.

The opportunity is open to 3 UK-based practitioners, with one space reserved for a Sussex-based participant. The residents will be provided with subsidised accommodation and studio space for the duration of the residency. Each participant will receive a monthly stipend of £500 and a production budget of £2,000. The residency will take place in January – March 2021. The deadline for applications is 8 November 2020 at 23:59. The programme – A Vanished Sea (Without a Trace) –   has been generously supported by Bridgepoint Rye and the Kowitz Family Foundation.

COVID-19 

We are committed to ensuring the safety of all residents, especially during the ongoing Covid-19 outbreak. We shall therefore be keeping the programme dates and format under constant review, in line with the latest governmental guidance. At the same time, we believe that now, as never before, the need for the exchange of ideas and community-focused projects is of paramount importance.

 

ABOUT THE RESIDENCY

The picturesque ruin of Camber Castle lies peacefully amid stretches of marshland over 1.5 km from the coast. It seems hard to believe that the splashing of the sea was once a constant sound here, rather than the bleating of sheep. Built on a shingle spit during Henry VIII’s rule, Camber Castle used to be an elaborate artillery fortification designed to defend the harbour and the towns of Rye and Winchelsea. Less than a hundred years after its completion, however, it was decommissioned – the receding sea left the castle inland, stranded and useless. 

During the residency, participants are invited to explore the broad themes of transience, ephemerality and perishability. From species extinction and habitat destruction to the impermanence of our familiar way of life, the discussion of these subjects has already become a part of our everyday conversations as we reflect on the changes forced upon us by the Covid-19 pandemic. Is a more nuanced understanding of transience a cause for resignation or an invitation to transform the relationship between human beings and other species? 

The programme – A Vanished Sea (Without a Trace) – will see 3 UK-based practitioners (with one place reserved for a Sussex-based participant) develop their site-responsive projects during a three-month residency at Bridgepoint Creative Centre located in Rye, East Sussex. Residents will also have access to Sussex Wildlife Trust’s sites located in Rye and an opportunity to work with the organisation’s staff and volunteers. Climate Art is a space for resident groups, artists and scientists to come together. Our practice stems from the understanding of public art as a form of meaningful engagement with diverse publics. That is why, at the application stage, all entrants are required to demonstrate a commitment to engagement with the local community, the ecological landscape of the town and its harbour.  

Applications are invited from practitioners working in any creative discipline (including, but not limited to, visual arts, architecture, design, performance art, film, dance, music, creative writing and others), as well as environmental-change researchers. Proposals may vary from detailed projects to preliminary ideas. Successful applicants will be expected to demonstrate clearly how they intend to develop their creative or academic work in response to the residency’s theme. While hoping that the three residents will find it inspiring to work alongside each other, Climate Art does not require a collaborative project to be the outcome of the residency.

The residency will run from mid-January to mid-March 2021 (exact dates TBC). Residents will benefit from subsidised accommodation and individual studio space for the duration of the residency. Each artist will receive a monthly stipend of £500 and a production budget of £2,000.We want the participants to make the most of the residency opportunity. It is understood that they may need to continue with some work or study commitments during the programme. We are happy to consider flexible arrangements, hoping that the residents will be in Rye for much of the working week and will take part in open studios and other events as part of the programme.

ABOUT CLIMATE ART

Climate Art is an interdisciplinary public art platform focused on climate change. Our site-responsive projects facilitate active cooperation between communities, artists, and scientists. 

At Climate Art, we encourage long-term, sustainable transformation through participatory public art that motivates us all to make positive adjustments to our daily lives. Our practice stems from the understanding of public art as a form of meaningful engagement with diverse groups of people rather than art located out-of-doors. Climate Art is a space for resident groups, creative practitioners and environmentalists to come together. 

 

ABOUT BRIDGEPOINT RYE

Bridgepoint is a new arts complex located in Rye. It is set in the context of a regeneration project, being undertaken by Martello Developments, which aims to convert a disused industrial part of the historic town into a vibrant campus, including an arts complex as well as housing and commercial activity. It is intended that the 20,000-square-foot Bridgepoint arts building will encompass artists’ studios, a large performance and rehearsal space, a commercial gallery, as well as other internal and external exhibition spaces.

The primary mission of the project is to provide a well-equipped and safe space for artists in an array of disciplines to contemplate and create, hopefully drawing inspiration from the area’s exceptional history and natural beauty.

 

ABOUT SUSSEX WILDLIFE TRUST

Sussex Wildlife Trust is a conservation charity for everyone who cares about nature in Sussex. We focus on protecting the wonderfully rich natural life that is found across our towns, countryside and coast.

By working alongside local people, we create opportunities for us all to connect with nature, and for nature to thrive in even the most unlikely places. Together we can make sure that future generations living in Sussex will be able to enjoy the sense of wonder and well-being that nature offers. Sussex Wildlife Trust manages 465-hectare Rye Harbour Nature Reserve, which includes Camber Castle and Castle Water.
