TEMPO grows to include muralists
Tuesday, March 27, 2018 by Katy McElroy
Art in Public Places is extending TEMPO, its temporary public exhibition, to include muralists. AIPP has opened up a request for qualifications for TEMPO 2-D, soliciting submissions of mural designs that will be “hand-painted, digitally-printed vinyl adhesives or temporarily attached panels for locations ranging from public parks to the Austin Bergstrom International Airport, among other sites.” Once a design is chosen, the press release says, “artists will work with the community to develop murals that reflect the character of their chosen location and special consideration will be given to artists with lived experience in the neighborhoods where they are proposing artwork.” Muralists who are chosen will receive anywhere from $2,000 to $7,000, “contingent on the size and complexity of the project.” Artists may apply here by Thursday, April 26, at 5 p.m. In addition, AIPP is holding three informational meetings: Thursday, March 22, 6-7 p.m. at Howson Library; Monday, March 26, 6:30-7:30 p.m. at the Dougherty Arts Center; and Thursday, March 29, 6-7 p.m. at North Village Library.
