Wanted: all-weather art


In an effort to beautify its outdoor spaces in Chatham and Wallaceburg, the Chatham-Kent Health Alliance (CKHA) is asking artists to apply to create pieces.

Officials said the goal of this initiative is to enhance the outdoors spaces at both locations, promoting health care, beauty, and fostering a sense of tranquility for patients, visitors, and staff.

Artists from all backgrounds are invited to submit their proposals for pieces that will enhance the exterior grounds of both sites. All mediums are welcome for submission, with the requirement that the artwork is weather proof, durable, and safe for public display year-round.

“We believe that art has the power to heal and uplift,” Lori Marshall, president and CEO of CKHA said in a media release. “This is an opportunity to showcase artistic talent while enhancing the healing environment of our outdoor spaces, furthering our goal of patient family centred care.”

Submissions are open to artists living in Canada. Artists may submit their proposals as individuals or as part of a group or organization.

A selection committee of CKHA leadership, patient advisors and staff will review all submissions.

Detailed information about the project, including applications, compensation, and submission instructions can be found at www.ckha.on.ca/public-art-project.

The deadline for submissions is June 7 at 4 p.m.
