The Public Art League (PAL), the Champaign County Design & Conservation Foundation (CCDC), the City of Champaign, Illinois and the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign, are seeking artists to create storm drain murals in our community. Selected artists will create stormwater themed murals adjacent to storm sewer inlets in order to raise awareness about stormwater management in an urban setting.
August 10, 2013 5:00pm CST
The Public Art League & CCDC will offer selected artists an honorarium of $100.00 to complete the mural. Paint and other supplies will be provided.
This opportunity is open to all visual artists, aged 18 and older, with public art experience. Selection panelists and their immediate family members are not eligible for participation.
The mural themes will incorporate and illustrate principals of stormwater management. The murals must also consider and reflect multi-cultural, kid friendly, colorful, funky, and international melting pot characteristics. As public art works, we encourage designs with an exciting, vibrant, and energetic nature.
Artists will be provided with paint and other supplies suitable for completing the murals. It is anticipated that the murals will last between 3-5 years before being replaced. All murals are expected to require no maintenance or touch ups.
