Final designs will be printed on adhesive vinyl and installed on bus shelter glass by the Town.  The artwork will be on display for at least 12 months.

We aim to inspire creativity and celebrate community for a better Chapel Hill.  We value inclusion, experience, and understanding, and encourage applications that reflect these values.

STPIEND: $500 -$600 to create a final design based on the submitted concept sketches and stakeholder input. 

ELIGIBILITY: Artists and designers must reside within a 40-mile radius of Chapel Hill and submit application materials following the instructions listed below. Selected artists must have the ability to deliver final designs as .AI or .EPS files per required specifications.

DEADLINE: 5 p.m. on Tuesday, February 8, 2022



The Town of Chapel Hill reserves the right to refuse any or all submissions or works, to refuse any finalist, and to waive informalities in procedures should it be determined that submissions or works are not adequate, or for any other reason prior to a written arrangement being reached.
