Franklin Park Mall is excited to announce a call for artists for an exterior mural project celebrating the shopping center’s upcoming 50th Anniversary.
Through Franklin Park Mall’s Call for Artists, we invite all artists to apply for the opportunity to create a one-of-a-kind, high-visibility outdoor mural. Reflecting the spirit of Toledo and Franklin Park Mall, we encourage applications that inspire and celebrate the 50th Anniversary of Franklin Park Mall.
A 306 sq. ft. (34 ft wide by 9 ft 4inch tall) exterior wall located near JCPenney facing Monroe St. Please see photo of the mural location below. All artist applicants must consider the location and site area as-is in their submitted design. In addition to providing a thoughtful visual of your design, artists should specify any surface preparation[s] needed prior to painting — such as primer or base paint color, etc.
Artists will retain all ownership of their artwork and any design ideas incorporated within this application at the time of submission. Upon selecting an artist or artist team, a contract will be executed and signed by the artist and Franklin Park Mall. At the time a contract is awarded, the ownership of the design and the artwork produced, in this case the public/private art mural project, will become the property of Franklin Park Mall.
Thoughtful consideration and various perspectives will be solicited to discuss and determine which artist candidate(s) best meet the Franklin Park Mall mural project goals and objectives. The final selections will be made by a small committee comprised of members representing Franklin Park Mall.
Financial compensation and insurance for completion of the mural will be executed in accordance with the agreed upon contract between the artist(s) and the center.
