NORFOLK, Va. (WAVY) – The Sentara Brock Cancer Center is looking for an artist to design and create artwork in the center’s Healing Garden.

According to the Sentara Brock Cancer Center, the work will be mounted on a 5 foot 15-inch exterior concrete wall and can either be flat or slightly raised from the wall. The center is looking for the artwork to be elegant, sophisticated, and visually stimulating.

The artwork should also convey a sense of peace and serenity, and lift up patients, family, and staff who come through.

The budget allocated for the project will be $5,000 to $25,000. The artist chosen for the project will submit the budget needed to complete the project.
