Call for Proposals – Visual Artists (James Paton Memorial Regional Health Centre Piano)

Deadline: Tuesday, April 30, 2019

Business & Arts NL’s #ComePlayWithMe Public Piano Program is going to GANDER!

We are now seeking submissions from artists interested in designing and painting a new piano, sponsored by the Comfort Inn Gander, for placement at the James Paton Memorial Regional Health Centre.

The theme for the design is “Compassion, Nurturing, and Care.”

Design can include any media, but must not impede the musical functioning of the piano. The artist will be responsible for the cost of all art materials. The design must include the #ComePlayWithMeNL hashtag, as well as Business & Arts NL’s website. Business & Arts NL will place a 12” x 24” sign on top of the piano, indicating the business sponsorship. Business & Arts NL is offering $1,400 in payment (which also covers materials), plus a one-year membership in our organization. The successful artist will also receive media attention, including still-image and video content, as part of the promotion surrounding this project.

If you are interested in designing the Comfort Inn/Gander Hospital piano, please submit the following components no later than Tuesday, April 30, 2019.

Applicants to previous competitions, successful or not, are encouraged to re-submit.

a) a 100-200 word biography
b) at least 5 jpegs of past work
c) a brief description of your design concept for the piano

Please send submissions to:
