Interested mural artists can apply to be considered for this commission online between now and Friday, February 28th at 11:59pm.  Artists will be asked to submit a portfolio of work as well as well as a CV and demonstrate a history of success in creating murals at other locations. Once chosen, artists will be asked to submit specific ideas for the location.  The mural artists will be chosen for this project by a panel of artists, curators and arts administrators throughout Pinellas County and will be notified on or around March 6th. The mural is planned to be completed by June 1, 2020.

This opportunity is open to artists or artist teams who are living or working in Pinellas County, or who have a meaningful historical or present tie to the County with professional experience in public art mural work. Applicants must be at least 18 years of age and be willing to adhere to all contractual obligations and adhere to the project guidelines and timeline.

These murals are meant to have drive-by and photographic appeal.  Artists (or artist teams) are encouraged to go beyond the simple representation of an object or event and to use their unique style of communication and expression to create an exciting, welcoming and inspirational space.
