Does your artwork inspire calmness and comfort? Then Legacy Emanuel Medical Center wants to see it.
Legacy is seeking mural proposals from local artists to bring comfort to rehabilitation patients.
The mural will be located on the lower level of Legacy Emanuel Medical Center in the therapy pool room. The artist can spread the image out over two different 9-by-18 foot walls or focus in on one location.
The design must match the interests of a varied audience.
Patients that use the pool include adults recovering from stroke, spinal cord injuries or head injuries. Children from Randall Children's Hospital also use it, along with high-risk pregnancy moms.
Individuals, groups, art teachers, students and anyone with talent and time is invited to submit proposals. Legacy will cover the cost of supplies, along with a modest stipend. A plaque identifying the artist chosen will be displayed on the wall.
Proposals should include a conceptual design, past examples of work and a rough cost estimate for supplies. A panel of hospital employees will review submissions.
If a suitable proposal is identified, arrangements will be made to proceed with the work during a mutually acceptable time frame.
The deadline to submit a proposal is Monday, Feb. 11.
Send proposals to: Amber Shoebridge, Public Relations, Legacy Emanuel Medical Center, 2801 N. Gantenbein, Portland, OR 97227.
