If your work is selected for installation, it must remain on display from January 2023 to January 2024. An honorarium will be given in the amount of $500 to the selected artist. If the artwork was made by an artist team, the honorarium will be split evenly between artists. Notification of status will be no later than Friday October 7, 2022 at 5 p.m.
The selected artist is responsible for hand delivering selected artwork to the Eskenazi Museum of Art. If the artwork is too large to fit in a standard vehicle, the artist may also be responsible for delivering the work of art to IU Health Bloomington Hospital, located off East Discovery Parkway, on a day arranged in coordination with Lauren Daugherty. Specific installation dates will be coordinated closer to January 2023.
