Avon Seeking Mural Artists
Avon, CO – The Town of Avon released a Call For Mural Artists / Request for Proposals (“RFP”) for multiple artists or artist teams to apply for the Avon Recreation Center Mural Project. The intent of the Mural Project is to create a significant landmark, focal point, and gateway between the east entry to Nottingham Park and the Main Street Mall, inspiring community, conversation, and connection while identifying Avon as an art community.
“We are seeking a design that will delight people with a unique and cheerful character representative of the mountain lifestyle,” stated Danita Dempsey, Culture, Arts, & Special Events Manager at the Town of Avon. Interested applicants may apply at CaFETM through February 22, 2021.
The enhancement of public places by integrating the creative work of artists improves the pedestrian experience and promotes vibrancy, creativity, and livelihood in the community. The presence of and access to public art enlivens public areas and their grounds and makes them more welcoming. It creates a deeper interaction with the places where we live, work, and visit. Public art illuminates the diversity and history of a community, and points to its aspirations for the future.
