Mural Project

Mural – 215 W. 8th Street –“Honoring the past and innovating the future.” The City of Georgetown’s Arts and Culture Board is issuing a call for artist proposals for a mural to be located at 215 W. 8th Street, Georgetown, TX.

Mural details

The goal of the mural is to provide a piece of public art of interest to residents and visitors that represents the City’s vision of “honoring the past and innovating the future.”

The mural will be approximately 21 ft. x 15 ft. (please see photo of wall at end of this page). The mural should start at approximately 2 ft. above the ground. Currently, vehicles park in front of the proposed mural location and images will be obstructed from the bottom of the mural to approximately 5 ft. from the ground. In the future, a sidewalk will be installed in front of the mural and therefore, there will be less of the mural obstructed. Please keep this in mind for the design of the proposal.

The exterior wall is painted stucco in good repair.

The mural should include the metal gutters.

There is no application fee.

Proposal deadline: 5:00 P.M. April 6, 2018

Stipend: $3,000

Material reimbursement:  Artist will receive up to $1,500 in material reimbursements (with receipts and subject to a signed letter of agreement).  Artists will be asked to include a budget in proposal.  Additional funds may be approved by the Arts and Culture Board if appropriate.

Completion date:  All work must be completed prior to Tuesday, July 31, 2018.
