Calling all artists! Sundance Square and Artspace 111 issued a challenge for all Texas-based artists and artist teams.
Twelve artists or artist teams will be chosen to help create a mural that will cover two warehouses, covering three blocks in Sundance Square.
The Temporal Integral Mural Exhibition – called T.I.M.E. – is an initiative that will allow the artists to design murals that, over time, will connect into one giant piece of art.
“Forty-five years ago, Sundance Square was conceived as a heart transplant to bring life back to downtown Fort Worth, a project infused with great respect and love for architecture, art, music and entrepreneurship,” said Ed Bass, chairman of Sundance Square.
“This project is a continuation of our commitment to make downtown a welcoming and vibrant place for families, for artists, for musicians, for ideas and for beauty,” said Sasha Bass, CEO of Sundance Square. “I am most excited about this mural collaboration because it will grant Texas artists the freedom to create something together. It will be beautiful; it will be relevant. In Sundance Square there is something for everyone.”
Ariel Davis of Artspace 111 added: “As champions of local, approachable and unforgettable art, Artspace 111 Consulting is excited to partner with Sundance Square to facilitate this amazing opportunity for all Texas artists. This project provides wall space and funding for selected artist to express work that is true to their vision.”
The T.I.M.E. project will be constantly evolving, and murals may be partially or completely painted over at some point in the future. The works will each be visible for at least six months. Each selected artist will have one month to complete their mural, and each selected artist will receive $2,000.
The call for artists is an ongoing project, and artists may apply at any time.
