Sculpture by MI Artist Needed: June 28th Deadline    
St Joseph Mercy Oakland selected art works from many Michigan artists for their renovation and is still in need of one more piece: an inspirational sculpture. It can be a newly created or already existing artwork. Their budget is $10,000. More details below.

"In the main lobby near the elevators is an area where a piece of sculpture is designed to be placed in a planter. We are looking for an original work that can complement a space approximately three feet in diameter and five feet tall. It should represent sacred journey and can include elements of community and spirituality, as well as serving as an iconic piece that supports the wayfinding. Sculpture must be able to be touched and created out of metal, stone, wood, concrete, granite, mosaic, or bronze."
