Franklinton Arts District and Franklinton Gardens Mural Project!

The Franklinton Arts District and Franklinton Gardens are teaming up in July for a brand new mural project on Saturday, July 16 and 23, 2011 at Franklinton Gardens on Avondale!
The Garden Mural Project is a first time collaboration between the Franklinton Gardens and the Franklinton Arts District (FAD). The project is looking for individual artists, or a team of artists, to design and paint a mural over the course of two Saturdays in July. This is a free community event in which neighborhood residents will be able to watch the artists at work, listen to live music from local musicians, eat free samples of healthy foods, and receive information on community gardening and local arts programs.
We are seeking community-themed murals that promote the vision of a just and peaceable Franklinton Ã¢â‚¬â€œ one complete with safe streets, fair housing, equality, health food access, alternative transportation, environmental sustainability, etc.
The Franklinton Arts District will be selecting a total of ten 4Ã¢â‚¬â„¢ x 8Ã¢â‚¬â„¢ panels for this event.
Artists, or artist groups, may propose a 1, 2, or 3-panel mural. Each panel is 4Ã¢â‚¬â„¢ x 8Ã¢â‚¬â„¢ and needs to be displayed horizontally. Paint, brushes, and supplies will be provided. All participating artists must be able to commit to painting during the 11-am Ã¢â‚¬â€œ 6pm duration on both Saturdays.
Artists will be compensated with food, drinks, goodies, and cash prizes.
Please submit the following information by Monday, July 4th to [email protected]. Late submissions will not be accepted.
1.Your name or names, each with address, phone number, and email address
2.5 images of your artwork for an individual, or 10 images of artwork from artists in the group. (jpg images at 72 dpi.)
3.An image list detailing the artist(s), title, medium, and year for each image submitted.
4.A brief statement on what you propose to paint for your mural, and how it relates to the community theme. (500 words or less)
5.We are working to pair interested artists with talented middle and high school students to assist with the murals. Please indicate in the email if you would be interested in having a young helper from Franklinton.
Please contact Sarah Weinstock, President, Franklinton Arts District (FAD) with any questions at [email protected].June 24, 2011 4:34 pm at 4:34 pm #449543
Thanks Erin for letting some of us know about this.
Gathering to mix artistic beauty with eco-morality should help to further inspire each of us, both according to our own lights and with a shared sense of community.
Eco-morality refers to not only our relationships with the natural environment but also to our relationships w/ each other and other animals.
Perhaps w/ a ‘higher’ level of awareness, we behold compassion and empathy as the highest forms of beauty.
