Eskenazi Health Seeks Local Artists for New Health Center

Eskenazi Health has partnered with local organizations 60 on Center and GANGGANG to both purchase and commission new art pieces, which will be displayed at the new Eskenazi Health Center location that will open next year near the corner of East 38th Street and North Arlington Avenue. Indiana artisans, professional artists and artist-led teams with Indiana connections, especially those with a strong personal connection to Indianapolis’ Eastside are encouraged to apply.

One of the hallmarks of the Sidney & Lois Eskenazi Hospital and several other Eskenazi Health locations is the vast collection of artwork displayed. The Eskenazi Health Public Art Collection was created to enhance the healing environment, represent the diversity and brilliance of our community, and carry forward Eskenazi Health’s deep and long-standing connection with the people of Indianapolis. Now, Eskenazi Health seeks to expand this collection for one of its newer locations. Along with partners 60 on Center and GANGGANG, Eskenazi Health seeks to expand its collection while continuing to highlight local artists and art collections.

“The Eskenazi Health Public Art Collection is one of the finest representations of diverse artistic talent our city and state has to offer,” said Dawn Haut, M.D., CEO of Eskenazi Health Center, the primary care division of Eskenazi Health. “Art has been an important part of Eskenazi Health’s long history and our new health and community center on East 38th Street will continue that commitment to art and healing.”

All skillsets and levels of artist production are welcome to apply. Acquisitions may range from the purchase of singular or multiple artworks, a numbered edition, or body of works. The themes and subject matter of art should support Eskenazi Health's mission to advocate, care, teach and serve; support the initiative to promote healing; and consider the diversity of the community served. A range of mediums are welcome for submission, including but not limited to oil, watercolor, acrylic, graphite, charcoal, pastels, photography, ceramics, printmaking, textile and mixed media.

The application window is now open and will close at 11:59 p.m. on Sept. 17. All applications will be reviewed by Eskenazi Health, 60 on Center and GANGGANG with selections made by Oct. 30. This is a direct purchase, and all artworks will be acquired by Dec. 15. Information on the submission guidelines can be found at To learn more about the project partners, please visit and
