About the artwork: Artwork should represent healing through nature and lend a sense of calm and peace to Upstate’s Nappi Wellness Institute. The interior of the building will have walls covered with stylized plants; surfaces that look like wood; and colors of sky, plants, and earth. Submissions should complement the interior design of the building. Preference will be given to NYS artists, particularly those from Upstate’s 17-county service area.


About the Nappi Wellness Institute: The Nappi Wellness Institute at Upstate Medical University (located in Syracuse, New York) is our new five floor, nearly 210,000 square foot health and wellness complex set to open in early 2023.  Our newest ambulatory center will offer adult and pediatric primary care services, specialty primary care through our Center for International Health (refugee) and Inclusive Health Services (LGBTQ+), be home to our Joslin Diabetes Center and Upstate Geriatrics, create new space for Behavioral Health, and offer additional services in radiology, lab, and pharmacy.  This will also be the first WELL Certified building in Central New York, reflecting our continued focus to patient and staff wellbeing.
