CALL FOR MURALISTS
Deadline: March 31
The Baltimore Mural Program is seeking artists for the Baltimore Farmers’ Market Murals. As a continuing partnership with the Baltimore Farmers’ Market and Struever Bros. Eccles & Rouse, Inc., the Baltimore Office of Promotion & The Arts (BOPA) is producing a competitive project to add murals at the site of the market located on Saratoga Street between Holiday and Gay streets underneath the Jones Falls Expressway. Six octagonal pillars around the market have been selected, with each side being approximately 27” wide. The murals should be painted in the round and measure 14’ vertically from ground level. The selected artists will receive an $800 stipend to paint the murals on the designated locations and the BOPA will provide the materials. The Baltimore Mural Program is a program of Mayor Martin O’Malley and the Baltimore Office of Promotion & The Arts. Artists must submit six electronic files in JPEG CD format of relevant existing work, a mock drawing of the proposed design, a current resume, and the completed copy of the application form. Materials are due by Friday, March 31 to Shawn James, Baltimore Farmers’ Market Murals, Baltimore Office of Promotion & The Arts, 7 East Redwood Street, Suite 500, Baltimore, Maryland 21202. The Baltimore Mural Program, a program of the Baltimore Office of Promotion & The Arts, has worked with local community associations, artists and funding sources to commission murals for 30 years. This program beautifies the cityscape, increases residents’ exposure to the visual arts, supports local artists, and unites communities.
