Gifts Of Art Program – Call For Artists
The Michigan Medicine Gifts of Art Program is seeking submissions for solo and group exhibitions for the September 2018 to August 2019 exhibit year. One of the first and most comprehensive arts in healthcare programs in the nation, the Gifts of Art Program brings the world of art and music to the academic medical center of the University of Michigan.
Deadline: 31 May 2018
The Gifts of Art Program is designed to calm nerves, lift spirits, and engage minds. This supports the healing process and reduces the stress and anxiety often associated with a healthcare setting. Engaging with the arts in a medical setting can be an especially powerful, transformative experience for patients and visitors. The artwork on display is richly diverse in style, medium, form, and subject. They provide an ever-changing sampling of the best art the region has to offer.
The University of Michigan Hospitals are a large, academic medical center with over 26,000 employees. Nine 2D and 3D galleries throughout the medical center are viewed by approximately 10,000 people a day. The galleries display over thirty exhibits a year. The galleries are some of the most widely visited indoor, non-museum exhibit spaces in Michigan. Artists are not required to have works for sale. Community and arts organizations are welcome to apply.
