Call for proposals: artCONNECTS - Montclair Mural Project

Share

Country:

City:

Eligibility:

artCONNECTS is a public art project sponsored by the Montclair Center BID, in partnership with Studio Montclair. The placemaking project is funded by a grant provided by the NJ Main Street program and the Montclair Center Business Improvement District. Four locations have been identified throughout Downtown Montclair for original painted murals. The locations include a key alleyway, and walls at connection points where art can surprise and delight. Murals are to be temporary, with a five year expected life.

The theme for submissions is "Love Montclair." Artists should submit artwork that speaks to what they love about Montclair and this community (creativity, diversity, food, music, shopping, culture, family, streetscape, natural setting, etc.), and that serve to connect areas of downtown Montclair, and/or highlight the important connection between art and community.

The artCONNECTS budget of $36,000 covers all artistic costs for four painted murals and a licensing fee. Each mural is allocated a portion of the total budget. Artistic costs for each mural include the chosen artist(s) creative and labor fees, surface preparation, equipment, mural protection/maintenance plan, supplies, travel-related expenses and other associated costs.

The works submitted for consideration need to be suitable for outdoor display and available for display May 2020 to May 2021.  

Deadline for submissions 22nd September 2019

‘Art in a corporate setting has a bad rep. Show me a bank reception and I will show you a daffy, nondescript bronze selected mainly for being studiously uncontroversial. Sculpture in the City, however, is a different affair. Returning for its ninth edition, this large-scale open-air exhibition transforms the Square Mile into a giant sculpture park. And the best bit is that the art on show is genuinely worth seeing. […] All works 21 works are a pleasingly disruptive addition to the slick City landscape.’  Rosemary Waugh, Time Out
