West End Placemaking Project Offers $4,000 to Local Artists for Mural Designs

The City of Atlanta’s Mayor’s Office of Cultural Affairs (OCA), the Department of City Planning (DCP), and West End Neighborhood Development (WEND) are seeking creative professional artists to propose designs for two street murals. The street murals will reside on the West End section of White Street SW as a part of the City’s Placemaking Program.

A monetary award of $2,000 will be awarded for each design. The deadline to submit your proposal is Noon (12 pm) on Friday, Dec. 6, 2019.

The City of Atlanta’s Placemaking Program is a community-driven initiative to transform Atlanta streets and public spaces. The program also works to improve transportation safety while enhancing the physical, cultural, and social identities of our public areas.

Local and regional professional visual artists are encouraged to propose street mural designs for the intersections of White Street SW and Joseph E. Lowery Boulevard SW and White Street SW and Hopkins Street SW.

There is no expectation of the artist(s) to install the artwork. The DCP will procure a contractor to install the murals per the finalized design.
