MERCY HOUSING MAJOR JENKINS APTS ART PROJECT

Project Overview

Architreasures, an arts-based community development organization, along with our partner Mercy Housing, a comprehensive affordable housing provider, is seeking an artist(s) to develop interior artwork for the Major Jenkins Apartments, a supportive housing residence for individuals who have experienced or are at risk for homelessness. The Major Jenkins Apartments is located in Chicago’s Uptown neighborhood at 5012 N. Winthrop.

The overall goals of the Major Jenkins Art Project are to:

Create visually compelling and uplifting artwork that enlivens two common areas as part of the building’s renovation.

Incorporate a community informed practice in the development of the artwork with designs that connect with the experiences, needs, and interests of the building’s predominantly African American residents.

Collaborate with Mercy Housing to involve staff and residents in the refinement of design concept.

The selected artist(s) will design and produce artwork for 1 or 2 wall spaces within Major Jenkins located in the building’s front entryway and a community room. The artist fee for the project is $2,500-4,000 for the entryway (@50 sq/ft) and $5,000-8,000 (@105 sq/ft) for the community room, to be determined based on design proposal. Material and production expenses for the project will be established with Architreasures upon approval of final selected designs.

Eligibility:

The City of Manhattan is a vibrant community of nearly 55,000 residents in northeast Kansas, two hours from Kansas City.  Manhattan is home to Kansas State University, a leading academic, research, and collegiate athletics institution, as well as Manhattan Christian College and Manhattan Area Technical College. An additional asset is the adjacent Fort Riley U.S. Army installation, home of the 1st Infantry Division.

The City of Manhattan, Kansas, seeks proposals for a public art mural project. Artists are invited to submit a proposal for this exciting opportunity to provide a large-scale work of art to be created inside the new Douglass Activity Center, currently under construction at 925 Yuma Street, in Manhattan, Kansas.

This mural project represents a unique opportunity for the selected artist to create a piece of public art representing the Black community in Manhattan. The mural’s theme should speak to the cultural and historical legacy of the area while celebrating and honoring the strength and resilience of the Black community. The mural should celebrate social justice, the creative cultural landscape, and changing attitudes toward racial equality. This mural will be the pinnacle of the Douglass Activity Center and will instill a sense of pride for the City’s diverse demographic.
