Muralists submission requested – Forney Arts Council

I am the Gala Chairwoman for the Forney Arts Council Gala and we are looking to hire a muralist for our Public Art Installation, that our organization (Forney Arts Council) is donating to the city.   We are partnering with the Forney Downtown Business Association and are seeking artwork proposals from Texas based artists or artist groups for an exterior wall mural in downtown Forney, Texas.  We are looking for a color palette that should include vibrant active colors and encourage interaction with the public.  The wall has already been prepped, but a visit to the site is encouraged.  The wall is located on 117 E. Main St., Forney, TX 75126.  We would like artists to submit some of their work for references.

Timeline Overview:

  • Call for Mural Project Proposals–Feb 1, 2018
  • Deadline for Mural Project Proposals–March 9, 2018
  • Notification of Final Selection–April 9, 2018
  • Installation of Mural Artwork–May 9, 2018 ( this date may be negotiable)

Please send your email proposals to fundraising@forneyarts.org and if you have any questions please contact Tammy Rosales at this email as well.

Thank you,

Tammy Rosales
