Arts At Erlanger Calling Artists For Designing New Sculpture For Erlanger Cancer Institute

Tuesday, November 13, 2018

Erlanger Health System is announcing a call to artists for a sculpture to be designed for the lobby of Erlanger’s Cancer Institute at the Baroness Hospital. 

 

The project will be funded by a grant awarded to Arts at Erlanger from the Lyndhurst Foundation.

 

“We are very excited about this addition to our Arts at Erlanger program,” said Katharine Toledano, one of the chaplains at Erlanger.  “The new installation will have a tremendous impact not only to the environment of our cancer center and first floor of the Baroness Hospital, but also to both the healing and inspiring properties we want to achieve for our patients and visitors.” 

 

The plans for the sculpture include suspension from the ceiling, attached from several points via steel hooks and cannot exceed 600 pounds.

The total budget for the project will depend on the artist and materials, and cannot exceed $40,000. Projected date of completion and installation is May 1, 2019. 

 

Local artists, who live within a 75-mile radius of the Erlanger Baroness Hospital, are encouraged to submit a letter indicating their interest and include a resume, photos of examples of previous works and other qualifications to create the requested artwork.  Submissions can be hand delivered or addressed to Arts at Erlanger c/o Katharine Toledano at Katharine.Toledano@erlanger.org or Spiritual Care Attn: Katharine Toledano 975 East Third Street Chattanooga, TN 37403.  Deadline for submission is Dec. 10. 

 

Artists are also welcome to tour the proposed location.  An informational meeting and tour will take place on Tuesday, Nov. 27, at 10 a.m.  The tour will start at the Starbucks in the Erlanger Baroness Hospital Medical Mall. Other appointments can be scheduled by contacting Katharine.Toledano@erlanger.org.  However, a site visit is not required for submission. 

 

For more information, call 423-778-5030.
