Request for Qualifications
Calling Triangle Area Artists
We’re looking for a Triangle-based artist or artist team to design and paint a mural on an outdoor basketball court in Umstead Park in Chapel Hill. We want a design that is fun, eye-catching, and that speaks to the energy of the sport and the park surroundings.
The mural will be painted on a newly resurfaced court that’s about 350 square feet. We want to make sure the mural maintains good quality for many years, so a particular type of paint and application process is required. You’ll need to apply the paint using squeegees and edging tape. You can choose three to five colors from color palette below for the mural.
Interested? Apply now.
- If you’re a Triangle-area artist, submit a qualification following the instructions below.
- We’ll select a few finalists to produce proposals and we’ll pay each artist $100 for this work.
- The selection team will choose one proposal for realization.
We’ll provide the special court paint and installation materials (squeegees, buckets, tape, etc.)
ELIGIBILITY: Reside within a 40-mile radius of Chapel Hill
DEADLINE: 5 p.m. on Thursday, February 16
Our mission is to inspire creativity and celebrate community for a better Chapel Hill. We value inclusion, experience, and understanding. We encourage applications that reflect our mission and these values.
