As part of our Public Art Initiative in Downtown Marietta, Marietta Main Street is requesting submissions for artwork to be considered for a temporary mural (1-2 years) that will be placed on the brick wall on The Cook's Shop building, located on Front Street and Butler Street.
Marietta Main Street's Public Art Committee is dedicated to facilitating the installation of art in our downtown district and highlighting the talent of our local artists. We are excited to kick off our mural campaign with this call for submissions!
Artwork is to be digitally submitted and will be digitally printed and installed on the wall - artists are not responsible for the installation. Artwork will be juried and the chosen artist will be compensated $500 for a high-resolution digital file of their artwork and the rights to display artwork. To honor the history of Marietta, the artwork shall be inspired by the theme of "Sternwheel."
Please refer to the official Call for Submissions for additional guidelines:
All submissions are due by September 15th. We can't wait to see what you come up with!
