ICONS OF ART AND SOCIAL JUSTICE:

A MURAL PROJECT

Icons of Art and Social Justice: A Mural Project

Black Lives Matter/ Black Art Matters

Project description:

 

As part of our ongoing mission to promote art and social justice, and to respond with immediacy to current transformative global Black Lives Matter movement, the ArtsXchange  will commission four murals along the south façade of our building’s exterior.  

 

We are calling individual artists/muralists, either individually or in collaborative teams with other artists or writers, to submit their ideas. We are seeking images and texts which depict inspirational Art and Social Justice cultural leaders (known or unknown), thoughts and/or aspirations.

 

Each mural artist/team will be awarded a $1,000 budget, to be inclusive of all artist fees, materials, scaffolding, and other expenses of completing the mural.

 

Each mural panel (see photos) is 10.5 feet Wide x 6.5 feet High.
