Call for Artists
Silicon Valley Creates & SJMQT
deadline February 25, 2018
Silicon Valley Creates (SV Creates) and the San Jose Museum of Quilts & Textiles is seeking proposals for a new project based, Artist-in- Residence program at Santa Clara’s Valley Medical Center’s (VMC) Women & Children’s hospital wing. This newly renovated facility dedicated to pediatric, newborn and women's health is seeking a resident artist to develop a project that takes inspiration from the stories of patients, staff and visitors at the new Women & Children's Center at VMC, our county's 'safety net' hospital.
The project will be complete when the final artwork is installed in the hospital, allowing for continued public access.
