The City of Durham invites qualified North Carolina artists or artist teams to submit qualifications to design, fabricate and install mural or ground plane public art at Garrett Road Park, Sherwood Park, Solite Park and Whippoorwill Park.
These four new locations are an extension of the Neighborhood Park Mural Project pilot initiative launched in spring 2017 at Southern Boundaries Park.
Public art at these locations should promote activity, creativity, playfulness and relevance to the specific park location. The city will give preference to artists/artist teams whose proposals incorporate community engagement. Application materials include:
- A statement of interest
- Annotated samples of previous work relevant to the project
- A project personnel resume(s)
The deadline for submissions is May 16. North Carolina residents over the age of 18 are eligible to submit to the call for art. Full submission guidelines, project details and the submission portal are available here.
