Deadline: October 30, 2020

Call to Artists: Samaritan Treatment & Recovery Services (STARS), located in The Barbara & Larry Mullins Center, has begun a request for proposal process to seek art which will furnish the new $4 million, 10,000-square-foot building that opened this summer.

  • The Lebanon Community Hospital Foundation will purchase art, as well as accept donations from both artists and collectors. Art will be placed throughout the building in both inpatient and outpatient program units.
  • Priority will be given to artists residing in Benton, Lincoln, and Linn counties. Artists with a strong connection to the county will also be considered.
  • Additionally, all artwork selected must be suitable for a healing environment, positively affect residents, promote a calming response, and avoid imagery that could be considered threatening or dangerous. Pieces must also comply with infection control procedures.

How to Apply: Guidelines for submissions can be viewed at samhealth.org/STARSArtGuidelines, and an application can be downloaded at samhealth.org/STARSArtApplication.

  • Email proposals, including photos of the artwork available, to the STARS Art Advisory Committee at ArtsCare@samhealth.org no later than October 30, 2020. Artists will be notified of award selections in December.
