Temporal Integral Mural Exhibition : Open Call for Artists
Open Call for Texas Artists
Sundance Square and Artspace111 Consulting present:
T.I.M.E.: Temporal Integral Mural Exhibition | Open Call for Artists
The T.I.M.E Project presents an opportunity for selected artists and artist teams to participate in an innovative mural exhibition in Sundance Square located in downtown Fort Worth, Texas. The appointed mural surface incorporates 2 warehouse buildings occupying 3 blocks in the East cluster of Sundance Square.
Like a clock, there are 12 designated mural areas. Murals will eventually envelope both buildings as murals meet. There will be no linear end, and the goal of the project is for the works to feel fluid,organic, and connected. The murals will be painted one at a time in clockwise sequence, with an emphasis on artist collaboration.
FREE TO APPLY
Sundance Square and Artspace111 Consulting are seeking artists or artist teams to participate in a new and innovative mural project in downtown Fort Worth, Texas. Eligible artists will be based in Texas. Artists of all experience and skill levels are encouraged to apply. For this project, Sundance Square and Artspace111 Consulting are seeking at least 12 artists to complete murals during 2021-2022.
This mural project encourages collaboration between mural artists, experimentation, and seeks unique artistic vision. As the murals begin to evolve and connect to each other, each mural will become part of a larger whole. The scope of the entire project covers 2 warehouse buildings, with each mural section being approximately 20ft x 20ft, each selected mural surface varies slightly in size. Mural designs are not required to incorporate the entire surface of the designated space. Selected artists are encouraged to consider the murals that come prior to and after their work in sequence – the goal of this project is to encourage artist collaboration.
The T.I.M.E. project will constantly be evolving, and murals may be partially or completely painted over at some point in the future. All works must be envisioned as temporary and will be visible for at least 6 months. Each artist will be given 1 month to complete their mural.
Each selected artist will receive payment of $2000 total to execute their mural (includes mural design mock-up, supplies, and artist fee for mural completion). Selected artists will be paid ½ of the artist payment upon signing an artist agreement, and the remaining ½ upon completion of their portion of the project.
A small lift will be available, but use will need to be coordinated with Artspace111. Electricity and security will be provided on-site. Bathroom and cleanup station available in Sundance Square.
