STREETSPARK is a public art program in partnership with the City of Hamilton
A CALL TO ARTISTS
Submission Deadline: 12:00 AM Midnight on Friday, February 12, 2017
Formed through a partnership between the Fitton Center for Creative Arts and the City of Hamilton, StreetSpark is a new program founded to further the arts identity in the City of Hamilton, Ohio through exciting public art projects. This program creates arts engagement by producing high-quality art, building opportunities for local artists and enhancing the visual appeal of the city. We hope to further the artistic diversity of Hamilton, showcasing a range of styles and perspectives. Through the goal of fueling Hamilton with art, StreetSpark will bring visible murals and artwork into our community. Through this program we will energize our streetscape, create awareness of the arts, and spark new development throughout Hamilton.
All visual artists/painters are welcome to submit designs using this application process. Artists may choose to submit a design, apply to be a mural painter, or both. If a design is accepted, the artist must then apply separately to be a mural painter.
While we strongly encourage local artists to submit designs or apply to be a mural painter, artists may be from any geographic location. Any related travel and/or lodging expenses must be covered by the artist.
Lead Artist: If a mural design is accepted, that designer may choose to apply to be the Lead Artist when the mural is created. They must have experience creating murals and significant leadership abilities. This individual will be the team leader and must also work with the StreetSpark Program Manager in ordering materials and overseeing the project.
Supporting Artist: These artists will assist in painting the mural under the direction of the Lead Artist and StreetSpark Program Manager.
