Call to artists: Request for Qualifications to Commission a Figurative Sculpture of a Nurse

Got Nurse?


Picture That has been retained by a Connecticut-based hospital to commission a figurative sculpture of a NURSE to commemorate their school of nursing that no longer exists.

The sculpture will be installed within a newly constructed, modern indoor atrium that has high visibility. 



The nurse will depict a young college-age woman, and she will wear a cap and dress that is unique to the school of nursing's attire during the 1960s time frame. 


The nurse's hair will be cropped below the ears and, she should look multicultural to reflect the diversity of the student nurses during that time period. Additional details regarding pose, facial expressions, cap, dress, etc. will be provided if your portfolio is selected for consideration.


This request is for a quote and the required materials below to give us a sense of your style and budget.  The time frame to complete the project is from 2017 to the first quarter of 2018.



1. Five (5) digital images  of sculptures you've created in the past that depict women in general and/or in the medical profession.  Either full figure or a portrait bust are acceptable. 

Name the digital files the same as artwork title.

2. Artist Bio /3. Artist Statement

4. Medium/Material you plan to use (bronze is preferred but we're open to suggestions)

5.  Your budget (inclusive of all components) to create a life-size sculpture; and also a portrait bust.  Please include the size of the sculpture in which you based your estimate. 



Please submit your proposal via email and format the subject of your email as follows:


For example: Nurse_DoeJane_Stamford_CT
