Cottage Health System Seeks Art Submissions

Selected pieces will be placed throughout three facilities under construction

Cottage Health System, through its Healing Arts Program, is seeking submissions for a variety of artwork to be considered for future purchase and commission for three hospital facilities under construction in Santa Barbara, Goleta and Santa Ynez.

The program is seeking artists who reside in the Tri-County area, as well as inland, including artists residing in Santa Barbara, San Luis Obispo, Ventura and Kern counties.

Cottage’s Healing Arts Program seeks to promote an environment that inspires and comforts patients, visitors and staff. Cottage seeks artwork that evokes messages of hope and healing. Imagery that represents elements of nature, water and landscapes also will be considered. Inventive yet sensitive works are encouraged.

Selected art pieces will be placed in the gardens, elevator lobbies, corridors, chapel, waiting and consultation rooms, patient rooms and other public areas.

A wide variety of mediums can be submitted — including sculpture, two-dimensional and three-dimensional artwork, mixed-media art, glass, mosaics, wall sculpture, fabric art, collages and photography. Artworks can be original pieces, limited-edition prints and even giclee prints. Existing and previously commissioned artwork also will be considered.

Submissions are due June 1.

To learn more about the call for submissions and the Cottage Healing Arts Program, the public is invited to an Artists Forum from 10 a.m. to 11:30 a.m. Saturday in the Burtness Auditorium at Santa Barbara Cottage Hospital. Enter the hospital at the Castillo Street entrance at the intersection of Pueblo Street.

For priority seating, e-mail Denise Stevens at .(JavaScript must be enabled to view this email address). Please include your first and last name and a contact number.

— Maria Zate is the marketing and public affairs manager for Cottage Health System.

Noozhawk Asks: What’s Your Question?

Welcome to Noozhawk Asks, a new feature in which you ask the questions, you help decide what Noozhawk investigates, and you work with us to find the answers.

Here’s how it works: You share your questions with us in the nearby box. In some cases, we may work with you to find the answers. In others, we may ask you to vote on your top choices to help us narrow the scope. And we’ll be regularly asking you for your feedback on a specific issue or topic.

We also expect to work together with the reader who asked the winning questions to find the answer together. Noozhawk’s objective is to come at questions from a place of curiosity and openness, and we believe a transparent collaboration is the key to achieve it.

The results of our investigation will be published here in this Noozhawk Asks section. Once or twice a month, we plan to do a review of what was asked and answered.

Thanks for asking!
