Call for Muralists - Blackstone Library Children’s Room Mural

The James Blackstone Memorial Library is seeking proposals from artists with experience  with murals and/or large-scale painting projects. The mural will be painted in the Children’s  area of the library’s Youth Services Department and should act as a source of welcome and  inspiration for those who enter.  Timeless, bright, and cheerful interpretations are encouraged.

The mural will be in the primary area, as shown below, and ideally, extend into the secondary area as far as is  appropriate to the design. Walls are painted plaster. The dimensions are: primary area – approximately 90” high and  110” wide; secondary area (curved wall) – approximately 72” high and 156” wide. The mural is located above our  playspace so the images, themes, and characters should be youthful and appealing to families with young children.

Please submit all of the following:
 • Full contact information 
• Brief cover letter 
• Resumé 
• Description & sketch(es) of proposed mural 
• Examples of painting/artistic experience
• Anticipated all-in cost 

Proposals will be selected based on: 
• How well the sketch, concept description, and  creative vision meets the above criteria of being  timeless, inspiring and welcoming 
• Feasibility of project completion 
• Quality of prior work 

Open to artists of all ages. Individual artists and groups welcome to apply. Applicants may submit multiple designs.
