DOWNLOAD EVMS Prospectus

The artwork should resonate with the EVMS brand, showing creativity, innovation and imagination. The work should be fresh, forward-thinking, expansive and airy, clean, approachable and welcoming, clear and purposeful. Artists may want to work with light and reflection capitalizing on all the glass in the building and showcasing the sculpture at night. We hope the artwork will become an icon for the city as well as for the whole campus creating a notable sense of place.

PROJECT SITE: The new building is located adjacent to downtown Norfolk, VA along one of the busiest thoroughfares near the Elizabeth River waterfront. It takes up an entire corner of the medical complex that includes Sentara Norfolk General Hospital and Children’s Hospital of The King’s Daughters. The Red Cross, Public Health, and other important medical facilities are nearby. A prime location for the artwork is at the front of Waitzer Hall at the corner of Brambleton and Colley Avenues. This corner is an epicenter for the region and a gateway to the campus with good site lines down Children’s Lane all the way though the medical campus. Brambleton Avenue is a major artery not just for Norfolk but for the entire Hampton Roads region. An average of 31,000 cars drive past this corner every day. Thousands come to the campus and the building every day. The artwork will be viewed by pedestrians, vehicular traffic, as well as from the inside of the building by students seeking momentary relief from the hectic classroom. The artwork will be located in front of the 11-story tower of Waiter Hall. An image of the new building and site plan are attached.

SIZE/MEDIUM: The artwork should make a bold statement and be at a scale to complement the building. It must be constructed of durable, permanent materials that are safe and easily maintained. Artwork should be constructed and operate to the highest level of sustainability.
