The Dumbo Improvement District is seeking proposals from local artists to paint a public mural that will be mounted on the NYC DOT fence on the south side of Front Street between Adams and Pearl Streets in Dumbo. The winning artist will be awarded $5,000 for an “artist fee and marterials to aid in the production of the mural.”
From February 2008 to August 2009, a mural titled “Nature Matching System” by artist Tattfoo Tan was displayed.
Deadline for the application is June 23, 2010 at 5pm. The winning designer will be announced in late July and the mural will be on the fence by late September. To download a copy of the RFP, click here (pdf file).
