The University of Kansas School of Medicine-Salina is seeking artists to develop original art for the new medical dducation building at 138 N. Santa Fe, scheduled to open in the summer of 2018.
Up to four artists or teams will be selected to create new works of art for four areas in the building. The art should reflect and be inspired by the missions of the medical and nursing schools. Visual artists and artist teams are eligible to apply. Preference will be given to artists residing in or with close ties to Salina and central Kansas, and all art mediums will be considered.
Applications consisting of a cover letter, images of recent work, an image list and an artist resume are due by 5 p.m. Oct. 13. Selected artists will be invited to create proposals specifically for installation.
Potential applicants are invited to a workshop at 5:30 p.m. Oct. 3 at the Salina Innovation Foundation at the Masonic Center, 336 S. Santa Fe. The workshop will be led by Saralyn Reece Hardy, director of the Spencer Museum of Art at KU and former director of the Salina Art Center, who will be a member of the project review panel.
