The Rutgers Cancer Institute of New Jersey (RCINJ) is seeking an Artist or Artist Team to design and install site-specific feature artwork(s) for their new Jack and Sheryl Morris Cancer Center. Developed in partnership with the New Brunswick Development Corporation (DEVCO), the 12 story, 520,000 square foot center is currently under construction and is scheduled to open in 2025.  It will serve as a hub for treatment, patient services and research in a first-of-its-kind facility in New Jersey. 

Rutgers Cancer Institute has been designated by the National Cancer Institute as one of the nation’s 71 comprehensive Cancer Centers and the only accredited Cancer Center in NJ.  As part of RCINJ’s mission to provide advanced cancer care through transforming laboratory discoveries into clinical practice, the Cancer Center will include state-of-the-art laboratories for research and clinical trials.  The goal of the feature art is to help create a welcoming and restorative environment for patient care while underscoring the hospital’s focus on science and research as a pathway to recovery.  Artists will be asked to create feature artwork within the theme of Recovery/Discovery, expressing the healing attributes of art through the lens of science/technology. 

Budget: $450,000

Eligibility: Open to all practicing artists who meet the following minimum qualifications:

  • Completion of at least one site-specific public art commission using durable and permanent materials.
