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. Previous mural experience is not required.
