The City of Sandy, Oregon seeks to commission a qualified artist or artist team specializing in murals to create an outdoor mural for the back of the old Thriftway building, next to the Sandy Historical Museum. The mural will be adhered to an exterior cinderblock wall of an existing structure. The approximately 12-foot by 60-foot wall is located adjacent to a new downtown Plaza–a public gathering place that will include a sculptural water feature.
The Sandy Mural Project provides an opportunity to connect to the City’s past, present and future. Opportunities for mural themes include but are not limited to: celebrating the City’s historic past as a stop on the Barlow Road, it’s proximity to the Sandy River, and as a gateway to the Mt. Hood region.
Open to artists or artist teams in the Pacific Northwest.
Deadline: July 30, 2010
