The City’s Arts and Culture Board is seeking artist proposals for two murals in Georgetown this fall.
Animal Shelter Mural Project
In October, the Arts and Culture Board reopened the call for art for a mural related to the purpose of the Georgetown Animal Shelter by addressing the rescue and adoption of pets.
Mural designs are due by Nov. 30, and artists will be notified of a final selection in mid-January. The artist chosen will be paid a $4,000 stipend to install the mural, and the cost of materials and equipment needed for installation will be funded by the City. The project must be completed by March 31, 2021.
Georgetown Title mural
Georgetown Title, in collaboration with the Arts and Culture Board, will also be seeking artists to design and install a mural on an exterior wall of their building at 702 Rock St. in downtown. The call for art will be open Nov. 1-Dec. 31.
The mural design should be an interpretation of the history of the site using abstract representation with an emphasis on color and shape instead of realistic representation.
An artist stipend of $4,000 will be paid to the artist selected to install the mural. The cost of materials and equipment necessary to install the mural will be covered up to $2,000. Artists will be notified of selection by late January 2021. The mural will be completed by April 30, 2021.
