Country:

Eligibility:

Living Classrooms Foundation of the National Capital Region (Living Classrooms) seeks a muralist to create conservation-themed murals for five cement bridge panels along the Benning Road Ethel Kennedy Bridge near the Benning Road entrance to Kingman and Heritage Islands. Kingman Island is an incredible natural resource and recreation area and was designated a state conservation area by Mayor Muriel Bowser in 2018. 

The purpose of this project is to beautify access to the Islands by creating an attractive passage, while simultaneously increasing stewardship from the local community. The commissioned murals are planned for the areas of the bridge closest to the Island’s entrance. In addition to the murals, community members will be stenciling wildlife images on panels along the full span of the bridge. Note that the mural sites will be prepped by Living Classrooms staff and volunteers.

Eligibility:

  • Visual artists age 18 and older.
  • Preference given to District residents, especially of Wards 7 and 8.
Prizes Details: 

$1,250 for the five murals at the completion of the project, with all work taking place in spring 2020, completed by end of May 2020.

Deadline: 
14/February/2020
