Call for Artists is OPEN!

Sprocket Mural Works is excited to extend an invitation to artists interested in producing an original piece of public art for the 2019 HBG Mural Fest!

2019 HBG Mural Fest is a focused surge of city beautification through the creation of 10 murals in 10 days. The mural festival will run from August 30 - September 8, 2019. Our first mural festival in 2017 was an incredible success, and we are looking for artists who are excited to be a part of our second effort and make their mark on our city landscape.

Applications are due by 11:59pm Eastern time on Monday, March 25, 2019. All applications must contain a link to your web portfolio (file sharing sites such as Google Drive, Dropbox or WeTransfer are acceptable).

Prior public art experience is appreciated, but not required. Preference will be given to local and regional artists, though national and international artists may be selected.

Artists will be notified of their acceptance the week of April 15. Artists will be given a stipend, as we believe all artists should be paid for their work. Materials will be supplied and walls will be prepped prior to the artists arrival.

The murals will be produced during the 10-day period of August 30 - September 8. Artists must be able to produce a mural within that 10-day period. Starting prior to August 30 may be acceptable, but would need to be coordinated with Sprocket Mural Works in advance.
