The Diaper Bank of Connecticut and J Mane Gallery & Consulting present:
“Creating Change From the Bottom Up” Mural Exhibition | Open Call for Artists

Overview

The “Creating Change From the Bottom Up” Project presents an opportunity for selected artists or artist teams to design and create in an innovative, urban style painted mural for The Diaper Bank of Connecticut Volunteer Center located in North Haven, CT. The mural surface is inside a warehouse building occupying a wall space of 40 ft. (W) x 8.5-11 ft. (H).

The Diaper Bank Volunteer Center is a central hub of activity and primary workspace for volunteers from all over Connecticut who package and prepare diapers, period supplies, incontinence products and other basic health supplies for delivery to families throughout CT.

The mural design content is open-ended. There are no preconceived notions for how it should look. The goal of the project is for the mural to feel fluid, organic, and connected to the mission of The Diaper Bank of Connecticut. It should be about community members helping other community members and have a statewide feel without obvious diaper imagery. The mural will be painted with an emphasis on artist collaboration.

Full Description

The Diaper Bank of Connecticut and J Mane Gallery & Consulting are seeking artists or artist teams to participate in a new and innovative mural project in North Haven, CT. Eligible artists will be based in CT. Artists of all experience and skill levels are encouraged to apply. For this project, The Diaper Bank of Connecticut and J Mane Gallery & Consulting are seeking an artist or artist team to complete the mural by April 29, 2022 for a Grand Unveiling event the week of May 1, 2022.

This mural project encourages collaboration between mural artist(s), experimentation, and seeks a unique artistic vision. The scope of the project covers approximately 400 square feet. The design is not required to incorporate the entire surface of the space. 
 
All works must be envisioned as permanent and will be visible for at least 3 years. The artist or artists will be given 1 month to complete the mural. The artist or team will receive payment of $500-$1,000 total to execute their mural (includes mural design mock-up, supplies, and artist fee for mural completion).
