The Munroe-Meyer Institute’s (MMI) mission is to be world leaders in transforming the lives of individuals with intellectual and developmental disabilities, their families and communities through outreach, engagement, premier educational programs, innovative research and extraordinary patient care.
There are two sites at check-in desks on the second and third floor, marking the entrances to main service areas. The goal of the artwork is to be an inviting, accessible and exciting for all age and development levels. Artwork must withstand or even invite touching and exploration, and be easily cleaned with normal cleaning agents. Acceptable materials include cast glass, mosaic, acrylic, wood, or mixed media. Unacceptable work includes technology, wrapped canvas or additional protection requirements, protruding elements, or sensory overload.

Total budget: $89,500 (inclusive of travel and lodging, equipment rental, supplies and fabrication for the final design and commission).
The Munroe Meyer Selection Committee, in consultation with the Nebraska Arts Council, has full oversight for the selection of an artist for this project. The committee may give preference to an artist who has an intellectual or developmental disability, or has a close connection with someone who does. Professional public artists or artist teams throughout the United States are eligible. The committee reviews RFQ submissions on SlideRoom. Two to four finalists will present proposals in Omaha, NE, and will receive travel and proposal stipends.
