Overview of the project:
The Fresno County Department of Behavioral Health is seeking artists to provide art for the Crisis Residential Treatment (CRT) facility, a newly constructed building in South East Fresno. The Department has allocated 1% of construction cost for this project to artwork. Because of the therapeutic nature of the building and its residents, it is preferred that artwork consist of subtle and muted tones. Artwork can be in the form of paintings, lithographs, textiles, sculptures, murals, fountains and mobiles for both indoor and outdoor space. It is preferred that there be no vases or glass artwork.
The building has a corridor outside of the living quarters that are designated as ideal locations for artwork. There is also the potential for artwork locations in other common areas as suggested by the architect. Outside of the facility at the entrance and the end of the residential corridor is the possibility for free-standing artwork.
