Vote until Dec. 3 for MAG and MAY mural art
Art South and Hudgins Companies, owner of the Mag & May apartments, have partnered to commission 20 murals at the Mag & May apartment community
under construction at 315 W. Magnolia Avenue. That’s right beside Fixture, at the corner of W. Magnolia Avenue and May Street.
Earlier this year through a public call for qualification, Art South invited artists to apply for a commission of 20 murals on the street-facing stucco stoops at the Mag & May apartments. More than 130 artists applied to the call! With a difficult decision on their hands thanks to so many quality applications, the Art South Selection Committee chose a diverse group of artists with a range of experience from highly accomplished muralists to those painting in large format for the first time.
The selected artists were each paid a fee of $1,000 per mural plus a small supplies stipend, and worked through a particularly rainy and often very cold fall season to complete the murals. Now, you are invited to go vote for your favorite
, and it’s very important that you do because there’s a lot at stake here. The winning artist will receive:
- A lead role on the selection committee to commission an artist for a final Mag & May interior mural with a $3,000 project budget. (In other words, the opportunity to pay it forward for a fellow artist!)
- A complimentary one-year lease for a live-work studio apartment at Mag & May
315 W. Magnolia Ave.
