May 27th, 2020- The Decatur Arts Council is searching for the next artists to create a new mural to be painted in 2020. Artists proposals are now being accepted by the DAAC Public Art Committee. Submissions are due by June 12, 2020.
This year’s project is being done in cooperation with and through support from the Beautify Decatur Coalition. The goal is to have a mural created that builds awareness for keeping our city clean and encourages everyone to enhance its appearance. For example, the Beautify Decatur Coalition has focused on the litter prevention theme, “Be a dear, put it here,” encouraging the use of available trash receptacles. Artists may consider this theme when developing a design proposal. Learn more about the Beautify Decatur Coalition at BeautifyDecatur.com
Artists may submit more than one design. The location for this mural has not been determined but will likely be a single-story horizontal wall. For more detailed information on design recommendations, proposal requirements, and how to submit a proposal, visit www.decaturarts.org/murals/ and download the Call for Proposals – 2020 document.
The Decatur Mural Project was established in 2012 to create partnerships with artists, property owners, and sponsors or funding agencies for the creation of murals to beautify our community. Mural design proposals are collected as locations become available throughout Macon County. Building recommendations are always welcome.
