Deadline: Tuesday, April 30, 2013 Memphis, TN - Recycling Center Beautification Murals RFP Eligibility: Local Memphis artists 18 years or older. Design Award: $1,000 Project Green Fork and the UrbanArt Commission invite local artists to create designs for two recycling containers in the Cooper-Young District of Memphis, at the intersection of 1000 South Cooper Street and Walker Avenue. Project Green Fork has adopted the existing recycling center in this location, which is intended to be both functional and visually attractive. Working collaboratively to enhance the cultural and environmental vitality of the neighborhood, the project partners invite stimulating designs. Goal of the project is to create artistic markers that identify the Community Recycling Center as a distinctive Cooper-Young asset that is positive, culturally rich, diverse, lively, and welcoming to both residents and visitors.
