NORFOLK — Eastern Virginia Medical School is looking for an artist to develop artwork for its new building, Waitzer Hall.

The call is open until Sept. 3 and applicants are asked to develop artwork that resonates with the EVMS brand, showing creativity, innovate and imagination, according to the call’s description.

There will be a budget of $350,000 for the project.

The new building is located along one of the busiest thoroughfares near the Elizabeth River waterfront and is adjacent to downtown Norfolk.

Artists applying may want to consider working with light and reflection, capitalizing on all the glass in the new building and showcasing the sculpture at night, according to an EVMS news release.

EVMS hopes the artwork will become an icon for the city as well as for the whole campus, creating a notable sense of place.

Another thing to note about the placement of the project: the artwork will be viewed by an average of 31,000 cars, pedestrians and students inside the building.

The artwork will be located in front of the the 11-story tower of Waitzer Hall.
