San Francisco General Hospital Foundation (CA), Call for San Francisco Bay Area Artists: Hearts in San Francisco 2020, with honorarium
Deadline: August 1st, 2019
From their call: San Francisco General Hospital Foundation’s Hearts in San Francisco project debuted in 2004. Under the leadership of Nancy Bechtle and Ellen Magnin Newman, 131 beautiful and inspired Heart Sculptures were created by local artists. The project generated a new level of exposure for the Foundation’s mission, as well as the Zuckerberg San Francisco General’s vital role in our community.
On an annual basis, a limited series of Heart Sculptures are created by San Francisco Bay Area artists. The Heart Sculptures play a lead role in the Foundation’s Annual Fundraiser Events held in February of each year. Heart Sculptures are both auctioned to raise critical funds for the Foundation and shared as a special token of appreciation with our Premier Event Sponsors.
The 2020 Hearts in San Francisco series will include:
(10) Large Heart Sculptures – 5 feet tall x 6 feet wide x 40 inches depth; 400 pounds
(8) Table Top Heart Sculptures – 16 inches tall x 17 inches wide x 8 inches depth; 25 pounds
(15) Mini Heart Sculptures – 7 inches tall x 6 inches wide x 2 inches depth; 5 pounds
Honorarium: Our selected Heart Artists will receive an honorarium to help cover the cost of supplies. Large Heart Sculpture artists will receive $1,000, Table Top Heart Sculpture artists will receive $500, and Mini Heart Sculpture artists will receive $200. Honorarium is distributed in two equal installments. First installment will be mailed within 10 business days of an artist having received their Heart Sculpture. Second installment will be mailed within 10 business days of the Foundation receiving the completed Heart Sculpture.
