Mural Arts’ Color Me Back (CMB) program is seeking artists to apply for a project to take place over the Fall-Spring 2023-24, October to April 2023.
The goal of this position is to engage the CMB program staff and participants in the creation of a new public art project at the Esperanza Health Center Parking Garage (860 E. Westmoreland Street). For this project, we want to encourage artists who think outside of the box. The location is prone to regular graffiti and a frequent site for other neighborhood challenges. Our goal is to transform the space and add something beautiful to the neighborhood while also increasing feelings of safety and belonging when arriving at the site for services. The artwork could be a mural, but is not limited to that medium.
As part of the application, artists should write a short statement of no more than 500 words about their interest in this project. While applicants are welcome to use this section to suggest possible projects, it is not required. Applicants are encouraged to discuss why this project is of interest to them, and how it may fit with their work.
The project will take place for about seven months and will be based at the CMB Kensington Studio.
