THE JAMES STREET SOUTH MURAL
PUBLIC ART PROJECT

CALL FOR ARTISTS

The City of Hamilton is seeking professional Artists and Artist-Led Teams to submit proposals for a mural, to be installed on an exterior wall on James Street South, across from the Hamilton GO Centre in downtown Hamilton.

Proposals are encouraged from Artists and Artist-Led Teams who have experience in creating large scale works and the technical skills to provide the work in a digital format suitable for large scale reproduction. The City of Hamilton will be responsible for printing the mural onto aluminum composite panels and installation.

Artists will be selected by a citizen Jury through a two-stage process involving a written statement of approach and qualifications, followed by submission of a detailed proposal by selected Artists.

Artists may create a work specifically for this call or may reformat an existing work. The work can be created in any medium but must be provided as high resolution digital files suitable for large format printing. Artists may submit more than one proposal.

Award: $4,000
Short-listed applicants completing a Stage Two submission will receive $300.

Submission Deadline: Thursday, November 23, 2017 at 3:00 PM (Hamilton time)
