We are seeking several artists to each paint a 6 ft x 8 ft mural outdoors at Southpoint Park during the 2013 Fall for Arts Festival. Every year, the Fall for Arts Festival inspires and engages Roosevelt Island's creative community with music, displays of art and interactive workshops. One of the festival's most-loved traditions is the painting of large outdoor murals - a large and enthusiastic audience comes out each year to watch these paintings take shape. After the festival concludes, the murals are left on display in the park for a short time, then moved into the Island's Motorgate Gallery for display through late 2014.
The theme for this year's event is "A Mystical Island," so designs should reflect a sense of magic or fantasy in some form. It's free to participate, paint and brushes are provided!
We invite you to submit a sketch of your design or any inquiries to Anna.Rankin@rioc.ny.gov along with a title and short description. Deadline for sketches is September 21st, 2013. Good luck!
The new dealine for submissions is September 28th. Good luck!
