So, I've been presented with a couple different opportunities lately, coming in the form of friends posting them on my facebook (thank you!). One of those opportunities was a Portland neighborhood looking for artists to do a mural on their community center's wall. All I had to do for that one, was send them a link to my portfolio. The other opportunity, was an organization called "Stunning Seattle" , looking for artists to paint 4 walls in Seattle. BIG walls. For this one, you had to submit a design proposal of what you would paint on one of them. My designs for this are below. If chosen, I would go up to Seattle sometime between late August and early October, for 2 weeks, to complete it. My best friend lives there, so that would be an awesome added bonus.
Last Summer, while I was doing my internship with the Mural Arts Program, I got a brief introduction to the world of submitting proposals for murals of this scale. Some of these projects' budgets run in the tens of thousands of dollars, and artists often apply to them from all over the country. I think these first 2 things I just applied to are on the smaller side of that scale, but still represent my first steps into this whole deal. Excited to apply to more and eventually, hopefully, get to do a mural that's this big and public someday. :) Wish me luck!
