CALL FOR MURAL ARTISTS
Spaces of Opportunity Community Garden Mural in South Phoenix
Deadline: January 30, 2017 at 11:59 p.m.
About the Project: The Phoenix Office of Arts and Culture, in partnership with Spaces of Opportunity, will select and commission a professional artist or artist team to work with the community to create one or more large-scale outdoor mural(s). The work(s) will be a focal point in an 18-acre vacant lot being transformed into a sustainable community farm at West Vineyard Road and 15th Avenue, in south Phoenix. Through a partnership with the Desert Botanical Garden, the Roosevelt School District and Cultivate South Phoenix, the Spaces of Opportunity urban agriculture initiative will help turn a food desert into a food oasis, providing affordable access to healthy food and active living, and connecting south Phoenix communities to the healthy roots of their diverse cultures.
The artwork will be expected to celebrate the unique spirit and identity of this important community project and its neighborhood and surroundings. The goal will be to activate strategic portions of the site's lengthy perimeter wall. The mural(s) will be painted directly on existing masonry walls and possibly other existing garden features.
How to Apply: Interested professional artists are asked to submit via email one current resume; a one-page (no more than 250 words) letter of interest; a PPT of up to ten (10) images of artwork demonstrating the ability to design, create, and install an exemplary painted wall mural; an annotated slide sheet; and contact information for three professional references. The PPT must be no larger than 10 MB. No mailed or hardcopy submissions will be accepted.
