TWO RIVERS COMPANY CALL FOR ARTISTS
The Safe, Clean and Green (SCG) committee of the Two Rivers Company (TRC) of Clarksville, Tennessee, invites artist proposals for large-scale murals in downtown Clarksville.
“Clarksville is gearing up to add two mural artworks to sidewalk and street-side locations throughout downtown Clarksville. We are encouraging artists to apply for the opportunity to create a mural.”
– TRC’s Safe, Clean, and Green Committee Chair, Kay Drew
The deadline for proposals is 4:00PM on October 13, 2017.
TRC and SCG are seeking proposals for art that engages with public spaces through diverse media and formats that include but are not limited to mural painting, graphic art, and/or site-specific projects. Two artists will be selected and will be asked to create a mural for one 14ft x 14ft wall. The two locations are the Corner of North Second/Franklin on the side of Bust Out Bonding and Madison Street at the Madison Business Circle on the side wall of Total Fitness. Interested artist should submit a bid for a maximum amount of up to $3500, the bid should include the costs for all materials needed to complete a 14ft x 14ft mural. Awarded Artists should complete the production of their mural during the period of October 25 – November 29, 2017.
The call for artists is open to all subject matter and content and may be whimsical, or build civic pride, and/or foster gathering in downtown. Artwork should be unique to Clarksville and encourage interaction with the viewer including photographs where the viewer places himself or herself within the mural. The TRC SCG is also interested in proposals that may establish focal points; modify, enhance, or define specific spaces; establish identity or address specific issues of civic design. Consideration should also be given to the architectural, historical, geographical, and social/cultural context of the site or community, as well as the way people may interact with the artwork.
