Brief Description

The Frederick Arts Council is requesting that artists submit their qualifications to be considered for the design and execution of a mural on 69 South Market Street. Applications are due on September 15, 2020, and finalists will be invited to submit a design by Sept. 30.

The Frederick Arts Council is commissioning artists to design and execute a mural located on the Carroll Creek Linear Park, a focal point in downtown Frederick. The design should incorporate elements of either inclusivity, hope or resiliency. This mural will catalyze a rotating mural program on the north (creek facing) side of the building which will change every three years. The medium must be considered to ensure easy removal and avoid any damage to the artwork or building.

At this stage, we are requesting that interested applicants submit their CV, examples of their past mural work and a link to their website or other portfolio platform.
This opportunity is open to all artists residing in the United States
