Call for Submissions: Inspiration Art Project

14 Nov
What inspires you to get or stay healthy could become part of a permanent art installation at Oregon’s newest hospital. 

This fall, Kaiser Permanente is inviting anyone who lives in its Oregon or Southwest Washington service area to share what inspired a switch to a healthier lifestyle. Entries should be accompanied by a digital photo of something representing that inspiration.

The most inspiring entries will be sent to Oregon painters. Kaiser Permanente is commissioning the artists to transform the winning photos into dozens of art panels that will form a large wall mosaic inside Kaiser Permanente Westside Medical Center. Located in the Tanasbourne area of Hillsboro, Oregon, the new 126-bed hospital and specialty medical clinic will open in August 2013. 

To participate, send a photo of your inspiration, along with a written essay fewer than 300 words or a three-minute or shorter video — in English or Spanish — telling how you’ve been inspired to get or stay healthy. The deadline is Friday, Dec. 14, 2012. For details, go to northwest-hospitals.kaiserpermanente.org

Entrants whose essays and photos are selected will be invited to an unveiling of the finished art project in spring 2013 where they’ll get to meet artists who worked on the project.
