Call for Mural Proposals

Call for Mural Proposals

The City of Ithaca ’s Community Life Commission and Downtown Ithaca Alliance are requesting mural proposals for the greater downtown area. Artists, residents, neighbors are encouraged to illustrate futures aspired from initiatives like the city’s Green New Deal. What images or scenes emerge when the benefits of social, economic, and environmental justice are shared by everyone in our community?

Successful proposals will demonstrate positive use of color, imagery, a sense of community, good will, and be reflective of the community where they are proposed to be placed.

Since physical dimensions vary by site, artists must specify their preferred type of site from the identified public spaces identified in the RFP and the public art webpage. An artist or collaborative group may submit more than one proposal, however no more than one proposal will be chosen per artist/collaborative. Selected artists for the 2020 cycle will be granted $250 for their work and provided with paint by the City. The City will also support selected artists seeking outside grant/funding opportunities.  

The application deadline for the GND Futures Theme is April 6th, 2020.

For more information about the project and for submission instructions, please review the Request for Proposals.

Please share this information with all who may be interested.  

If you have any questions about the project or how to submit a proposal, please feel free to contact Alexander Phillips, Planner at  aphillips@cityofithaca.org (607) 274-6556.
