Calling all muralists! The Southside Main Street Project is tired of looking at the blank United Systems wall at 1201 S. Main St., across from Community Bakery! It's issued a request for proposals from artists interested in designing a mural for that wall and expects to spend between $10,000 and $15,000 realizing the work. Fund-raising has begun.
Artists should have experience designing murals and should submit at least 10 color images of the work. To get more about the selection criteria and the project, go here.
SOMA's Wall Mural Design Committee will start accepting proposals Friday, July 1; Aug. 31 is the deadline to submit.
Hillis Schild, chair of SOMA, expressed appreciation for United Systems for agreeing to the project in a press release announcing the call for artists.
