CALL FOR ARTISTS FOR THE OASIS
APPLICATION DEADLINE: May 1, 2015
Project Title: The Oasis

Description of Project:

This is an invitation to provide artwork for the new University Student Union Wellness Center named the “Oasis” at the California State University, Northridge. Artwork is needed in 5 locations throughout the Oasis. There may be additional opportunities to provide artwork in spaces not previously dedicated to art. Scheduled to open in Fall 2015, The Oasis Wellness Center will offer nutrition counseling, meditation, therapeutic treatments such as acupuncture and massages, and workshops focused on wellness and managing stress. CSUN students will also be able to relax in the quiet comfort of the lounge and sign up for a nap in the sleep pods. The Oasis will be a welcoming destination where each student can find serenity and revitalization amid the rush and activity of campus life. It will also provide a range of effective health and wellness programs and services that promote student academic success. The American College Health Association has identified significant health-based barriers to academic progress including stress and sleep disturbances. The new facility will address those concerns and promote improved student retention and graduation rates.
