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.
