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.
ABOUT THE FIGURATIVE SCULPTURE
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.
