Call Type: Public Art
Entry Deadline: 5/10/17
The BMP Metropolitan District No. 1 in collaboration with RedLine is seeking proposals for a public mural that spans a block-long wall (approx. 200 ft.) across from the Alameda Light Rail Station in Denver, CO. The budgeted commission for this piece is $60,000 which includes design, materials, and the physical application of the mural itself. The location of the mural represents a unique intersection of urban life connecting the Denver Design District, a public transportation hub, and sets the stage for a new transit-oriented development that will redefine this area of the city. Artists experienced in public murals should apply and consider this an opportunity to create a dynamic piece that speaks to the placement of the mural on the Xcel substation wall and its location adjacent to the RTD light rail station. Design concepts that capture the intersection of innovation, design, transportation, sustainability, and energy as well as speak to the surrounding neighborhood are encouraged.
