Call for Artists VCU Medical Center

I received this email earlier today. 
Dear Fellow Artists:

Please see the attchment to this Email.

VCU Medical Center has three Galleries at the hospital.  If you are interested in having an exhibit in one of the galleries please send the required material to the address on the announcement.

I also purchase the art for the Hospital; so even if you are not interested in an exhibition send me a link to your website.  There are projects that I am looking for original artwork.
