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.
We are looking for painters and mural artists to create murals during the summer of 2017.
Artists will be hired as temporary employees and are expected to be professional and reliable for all assigned work.
Artists must be 18 years or older and have a background check done before hiring can be approved.
If hired, any related travel and/or lodging expenses must be covered by the artist.
Artists will be paid an hourly rate. Duration of work will be based on the size/scope of each mural. Payment and work details will be determined at the discretion of the Program Manager.
Artist teams will be determined by the StreetSpark Program Manager after designs are selected.
