Brief Description

The City of Guelph invites artists and artist collectives with exterior mural experience to submit their credentials, examples of prior experience and a preliminary vision for the development and execution of one of four site-specific, outdoor murals as part of Ontario’s Main Street Revitalization Initiative. For this project there are four separate, yet connected, sites along Wilson Street. While artists are able to submit qualifications and letters of intent for all four sites, artists or artist collectives will only be awarded a single commission and one artist or collective will be selected per site. This call follows a two-stage selection process. The first stage is a Request for Qualifications (RFQ). Design concepts are not required at this time. The artwork for the Main Street mural project should support the vibrancy of the location and help enhance the pedestrian realm and sense of place, while beautifying the streetscape.
