The Eskenazi Health Art Collection was created to enhance our healing environment, represent the diversity and brilliance of our community, and carry forward Eskenazi Health’s deep and long-standing connection with the people of Indianapolis.
Eskenazi Health is acquiring a diverse collection of artworks for permanent acquisition and display at Eskenazi Health Center East 38th Street opening in 2024. This call is open to all skill sets and levels of artist production. Acquisitions may range from the purchase of singular or multiple artworks, a numbered edition, or body of works. Eskenazi Health values art as an instrument for healing and believes that artwork can reduce patient stress and improve health outcomes. The themes and subject matter of art should support Eskenazi Health’s mission to advocate, care, teach, and serve, support a healing environment, and consider the diversity of the community served.
A range of mediums are welcome for submission, including but not limited to: oil, watercolor, acrylic, graphite, charcoal, pastels, photography, ceramics, printmaking, textile, and mixed media. All artworks should be wall-based and constructed with stable and ready to hang materials, including but not limited to stretched canvas, paper, wood, ceramic, and mixed media. Artworks do not need to be mounted or framed as Eskenazi Health will facilitate and incur the expense of framing.
Artworks may range in size from small to very large and can be singular objects or a grouping of several items. Interested artists can submit up to 10 individual, singular artworks for consideration or 5 artworks consisting of multiple elements or pieces. Artists may submit images of preexisting artworks available for purchase, or if they desire to be commissioned for new works, may share images of previously made artworks and a description with sketches of commission concepts.
