Brief Description

Artists who are residents of Maryland are invited to submit qualifications to paint an outdoor mural celebrating Downtown Wheaton and its variety of cultures. The purpose of this project is to help make Wheaton a truly enjoyable place to walk where people can experience art daily.

This is a commission for a new outdoor mural of approximately 2000 square feet on the side of an existing building. The building is two stories and faced primarily with glazed brick. The selected artist will finalize their design and provide up to two iterations to respond to comments. The artist will be responsible for materials, insurance and rental of equipment such as a lift. The artist will coordinate with the property owner who will prepare the wall. The commission includes community engagement which consists of the artist providing a teaching session on-site for several local art students, a presentation for the public and a brief online voice recording about the mural.
