The Illinois Arts Council Agency has partnered with the Capital Development Board’s Art-in-Architecture Program in promoting an opportunity for Illinois artists. The Art-in-Architecture Program of the Capital Development Board is pleased to announce a Request for Qualifications (RFQ) to Illinois professional artists to create permanent original public art for the Health Simulation Lab in Douglas Hall at Chicago State University in Chicago, Illinois.
This public art commission is open to all artists, artisans, or artist-led teams that live and work in the State of Illinois. The deadline to apply is Friday, April 28, 2023.
An inter-professional health simulation lab will be constructed on the second floor of Douglas Hall. Multiple disciplines will use this space including nursing, pharmacy, public health, occupational therapy, and health information administration. Work includes creating a state-of-the-art simulation laboratory as well as the construction of associated classrooms and offices.
In addition to the simulation lab, this project will construct a new space for the Center for Solutions of Urban Populations. A second RFQ will be posted at a later date to commission artwork for the Center.
