Openhouse invites artists to submit qualifications and ideas for the design and implementation of a mural project at the Openhouse Community Center in San Francisco, the heart of a new, long-awaited housing complex for LGBTQ Seniors. The mural will honor and celebrate HIV Long Term Survivors, and create a welcoming environment for community members and visitors.
LGBTQ artists and allies who are HIV+, or whose lives have been impacted by HIV/AIDS, are invited to submit qualifications for design and implementation of the mural. Artists must reside in California, Oregon or Washington. Professional artists with experience in the field of public art and murals are encouraged to apply. Artists can apply as individuals or in teams of two. All materials must be submitted through the Submittable application.
Three to five finalists will be given a $500 stipend to develop a detailed drawing and description of their mural concept. $20,000 will be awarded to the winning artist, plus a $5,000 budget for materials. The artist will start on the mural immediately, to be completed by September 15, 2019.
