Program Description

Maimonides Medical Center presents a Request for Qualifications (RFQ) for a lead artist/s to work on a mural or public artwork to be displayed in a prominent location on the Maimonides campus in Brooklyn, New York. The selected artist/s will work collaboratively with the Public Artwork Steering Committee (PASC) and Focus Group comprised of staff and/ or community members to develop the artwork concept and design. The goal for the artwork is to honor the past, present, and future of Maimonides’ service to our community, a recognition and celebration of those who have come before and those yet to serve. Maimonides Medical Center will select one professional artist (or one team of artists) to work closely with the PASC to develop the artwork scope and concept. The scope of the artwork lends itself most closely to mural work, but it not limited to such, and and Maimonides invites creative and unique perspectives for artwork that will fulfill the aforementioned goal.
