ELIGIBILITY: The Project is OPEN to all artists; selection will be based on design, context, style and experience.
PROJECT DESCRIPTION: Greater Nevada Field, home to the Reno Aces and the Reno 1868’s FC, is commissioning a mural for the right field concession stand. The mural will face towards the infield. Goals of this project include: transforming the concession stand into an art form; increase public awareness of art and use art to connect the Reno Aces and Reno 1868’s FC with the community.
The deign should reflect the nature of the park, incorporating a baseball/soccer/Northern Nevada themed mural with encouragement for creativity and storytelling. The proposal should include a sketch and any written dialogue to explain the project.
The artist (s) selected should have demonstrated experience working in public locations. Artwork will be selected based on the quality of design and have a 3-year life expectancy. Proposals should consider aesthetically pleasing use of color and form as well as relate well to the surrounding environs in which they will be placed. Murals are subject to the harshest environmental conditions; murals must be painted with high-quality colorfast paint with the proven ability to maintain color-fastness for three years. Artists are expected to provide manufacturer specifications on chosen materials with proposal. Artists are encouraged to use their creativity and sense of whimsy in their proposal.
Proposals are due Friday Feb. 24 by 5 p.m. Deliver to firstname.lastname@example.org digitally or on a flash drive/cd physically to Sierra Arts, 17 S. Virginia St. Ste. 120 Reno, NV 89509.
Compensation will be based on design, style and experience. Artists are encouraged to submit a budget along with their proposal.
