    SaludArte, a public art program sponsored by the Pima County Health Department, is seeking community members to provide input on five public art projects in 2023. 

    The program aims to express, through art, the impact of COVID-19 on Pima County’s most vulnerable communities. Participants will be required to attend a series of community meetings and will be paid $100 Salud Arteper meeting. They don’t need to have an artistic background or expertise.

    Through this collaboration, SaludArte will produce one unique project in each of Pima County’s five supervisory districts. In each district, the Health Department has identified a ZIP code in which residents were hardest hit by COVID-19 or experienced disproportionate impacts due to disparities rooted in social inequality.

    To be eligible, applicants must live in one of the following five ZIP codes:
    • 85741 (District 1)
    • 85713 (District 2)
    • 85321 (District 3)
    • 85710 (District 4)
    • 85746 (District 5)
    Once selected, panels from each ZIP code will work with artists selected by the Arts Foundation to create a temporary art installation to represent each district.

    Artists (or artist teams) for each of the five installations will be selected by the Arts Foundation in a separate “call to artists” process. Each project will be funded by a $30,000 grant. Interested artists must apply by Jan. 12, 2023.

    Anyone interested in participating as a collaborator should visit this page to apply. Applications must be received by Jan. 7, 2023. More information about SaludArte can be found here.
