Call for Community Muralists

Website Brandon Neighbourhood Renewal Corporation

deadline: February 21, 2019

The Downtown Public Art and Mural Committee, comprised of representatives from the Brandon Neighbourhood Renewal Corporation (BNRC), Brandon Downtown Development Corporation (BDDC), Art Gallery of Southwestern Manitoba (AGSM) and downtown property owners, is seeking artists or artist teams to create several murals in downtown Brandon.

Artist Fee:           $5,000 per mural (one exception)

Eligibility:            Artists residing in Canada

Deadline:            February 21, 2019

Completion:       Spring 2019

The purpose of this request for proposals is to select an artist or group of artists to transform pre-selected walls in downtown Brandon through the creation of original murals. The goal of the Downtown Public Art and Mural Program is to bring about a new sense of energy to our downtown.

We believe that a focus on this type of public art will generate significant interest in downtown and will draw local residents and tourists alike to this important part of our city. This will have positive social and economic spinoffs for our entire community, but particularly for our inner-city community. To that end, murals not only create a sense of energy but they also increase the perception of safety in an otherwise dark and dilapidated alley or on a blank wall.
