Submitting your information does not guarantee a commission.
Artists who have submitted their information will be contacted if their skill and style matches the community group’s desires for a particular portrait mural and the nature of the mural site.
Three artists will be selected to create design proposals for each mural. Artists will be paid to create these proposals.
The community group will select one of the proposals and the Arts Council will commission the artist to create the mural.
This is a long-term project and there is no way to predict right now when the murals will happen, so we appreciate your patience.
We know that we will create at least one mural in Spring/Summer 2021, and if you are being considered for that mural you will be contacted in December 2020. You will have about 4-6 weeks to create your proposal if you are invited, and you will be paid for your proposal.
Artists are encouraged to keep their information updated, and will be contacted periodically to provide new images and experience information.
