Call for Proposals – Visual Artists (Dr. G. B. Cross Memorial Hospital)

Deadline: Thursday, April 18, 2019

This #ComePlayWithMeNL public piano at the Health Sciences Centre in St. John’s was designed/painted by artist Louise Markus and is sponsored by Clayton Hospitality. It is currently one of six placed around the province.

Business & Arts NL’s #ComePlayWithMeNL Public Piano Program is expanding!

We are now seeking submissions from artists interested in designing and painting a new piano, sponsored by the Quality Hotel Clarenville, for the Dr. G. B. Cross Memorial Hospital.

The theme for the design is care, comfort, and health.

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 Quality Hotel/Clarenville Hospital piano, please submit the following components no later than Thursday, April 18, 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
