Open Call for Mural Proposal, Greenpoint, Brooklyn

Open Call for Mural Proposal, Greenpoint, Brooklyn
Deadline for application: June 18, 2012.

Brooklyn Arts Council (BAC), in partnership with the TnT Scrap, seeks proposals for artwork to be installed on a large corrugated metal fence in Greenpoint, Brooklyn near the Newtown Creek at 1200 Manhattan Avenue.

The fence’s dimensions are approximately 60 feet wide by 20 feet high. Proposed works should integrate ideas about the community, the beauty of the creek, recycling and/or the importance of maritime industrial usage.  Brooklyn-based visual artists and collectives working in two-dimensional media are encouraged to apply. Video works will not be considered for this project. Final artwork selection will be made by a panel of community stakeholders.

Chosen artists/collectives will receive a $5,000 honorarium.
They will also receive a supply budget to be determined based on the project.

Criteria & Guidelines:

  • Artists are encouraged to visit the site prior to applying. The site is outdoors and open to the public. No appointment is necessary, though we ask that you respect TnT Scrap by not disturbing them during a site visit.
  • Please direct all inquiries to BAC.
  • Applicants are required to complete the application and upload renderings/images and a supply budget.
  • 1 artist/collective project will be chosen for the site by a panel of community stakeholders.
  • Logistical details will need to be coordinated with BAC and TnT Scrap. Applicants may be contacted for additional information during the course of the application review process in order to ensure a mutual agreement about the details of the project. As a result, please be as comprehensive as possible in your application, understanding that you may need to be flexible with regard to the final project agreement.
  • Chosen artists/collectives should be available for a start date around the beginning of August and should include in their proposal a timeline for the completion of their proposed artwork.
  • Artists must have the capability to complete the project within the allotted time frame.
  • Chosen artist(s) will be contacted mid-late July of 2012.
