The Regional Arts & Culture Council and Open Signal invite emerging artists/teams of artists who identify and belong to communities of color and are currently living in Clackamas, Multnomah or Washington County in Oregon, or Clark County in Washington to submit proposals for a temporary mural at Open Signal along the highly visible NE Martin Luther King, Jr Blvd. at 2766 NE Martin Luther King Jr Blvd, Portland. Fresh Paint is a partnership between RACC’s Public Art Murals program and Open Signal, a community-driven media arts center that provides the public with easy access to media tools, training, broadcast and opportunities for experimentation. This program provides artists resources they would not typically have access to as they explore working in the public sector and incorporating new approaches and skills in their artistic practice and experience.
Please review the Request for Proposals (RFP) for background info, artist selection process, budget, application requirements, application process and timeline.
Selected artists will receive a $2000 honorarium.
Application Deadline: Monday, July 16, 2018, by 5:00pm PST.
