Main Line Health announces a call for artists for the annual, international juried Art Ability exhibition and sale, a twelve-week event featuring art and fine crafts by artists with physical, cognitive, hearing and visual impairments. It is the largest and most comprehensive exhibition of its kind in the nation.
Art Ability at Bryn Mawr Rehab Hospital is a year-round program which serves as a showcase and marketplace for talented artists. The program educates the community about the remarkable abilities of people with disabilities and inspires artists to reach beyond their limitations and explore their own creativity.
Deadline: 6 Jul 2020
The exhibit will be on display from November 2020 through January 2021 in the corridors of the hospital and open to the public based on current visitor policies. In light of the current pandemic, Main Line Health has decided to pivot the annual Preview Reception and Dinner & Auction events to a virtual format. As Main Line Health celebrates Art Ability’s 25th year, they invite you to join them for the livestream virtual Kick-Off Party on Saturday, November 7, 2020. Proceeds of the Art Ability opening receptions help support Bryn Mawr Rehab Hospital patient and community programs.
Participating artists express their creativity through painting, photography, sculpture, fiber arts, stained glass, jewelry and fine crafts. Through these creative modes of expression, artists are able to convey their talent, receive recognition for their work, and often further progress in recovering from a life-altering illness or injury.
Distinguished members of the Greater Philadelphia arts community award prizes in each media category. Each accepted work is eligible for prizes of up to $1,000 per piece. More than $7,000 in prizes will be awarded. Artists earn 80 percent of their sales of exhibited work.

San Francisco General Hospital Foundation announces a call for artists for the annual Hearts in San Francisco public art project, which will be celebrating its 16th anniversary. For the 2020 series, the Foundation welcomes design submissions by local San Francisco Bay Area artists. The series will include ten large hearts, eight table top hearts, and fifteen mini heart sculptures.
Deadline: 1 Aug 2019
On February 13, 2020, the hearts will be auctioned at the annual Hearts in San Francisco event. Proceeds benefit life-enhancing programs and initiatives at Zuckerberg San Francisco General, the Heart of our City. Artwork and proceeds (2004–2019) have raised more than $22 million for the Foundation and nationally recognized programs to enhance the quality of patient care in the areas of women and children’s health, chronic disease management, palliative care, HIV/AIDS, orthopedics, trauma and more.
Hearts in San Francisco is one of the most widely recognized public art projects in the country. Since the project’s inception in 2004, San Francisco Bay Area artists have created more than 350 Hearts. They have gone on display all across the city of San Francisco and beyond, from Union Square to the lobbies or conference rooms of corporate supporters throughout the state, including Genentech and Wells Fargo.
Each Heart is a unique, one-of-a-kind work of art and celebrates the diversity of San Francisco through designs made of acrylic paints, mosaic art, mixed media sculptures, and Swarovski crystals. Artists have the option to propose a design for either a large heart (5′ tall x 6’ wide x 40″ deep; 400 pounds), table top heart (16″ tall x 17″ wide x 8″ deep; 25 pounds), or mini heart (7″ tall x 6″ wide x 2″ deep; 5 pounds). Select Large Hearts will have the opportunity to be displayed in San Francisco’s Union Square from February 2020 through to October 2020.
Heart sculpture artist selection is conducted by a committee comprised of San Francisco General Hospital Foundation staff, board members, and community volunteers. Selection notifications will be sent via email the week of August 26, 2019.
