Artspace111 is thrilled to announce a call for Texas muralists to design and execute a mural on the exterior of Artspace111’s iconic 109 year old building. The gallery welcomes proposals based on original and innovative ideas from the vision of each artist or artist team. The mural will be located on the North facing wall in Downtown Fort Worth which is passed by 24,000 drivers each day. A project budget of $8000 will be awarded to the artist with the winning mural proposal, and it is free to apply. The deadline to apply is January 15, 2021. Please see full prospectus for details.
"Murals are an important part of what makes Fort Worth a spectacular city. As the next stage in the growth of Artspace111, we are ready to move forward with the addition of a massive mural to the physical presence of the gallery and what makes Artspace111 a special art destination. Our goal with this call is to welcome the free ideas and vision of Texas artists, and to give the selected artist or artist team an opportunity to showcase on a large and very visible scale." - Ariel Davis, Gallery Manager, Artspace111
