Screen Shot 2014-11-30 at 3.18.55 PM

The Downtown Dayton Partnership, Miami Conservancy District, and a team of community partners are seeking an original design to be painted on a concrete flood wall along the Great Miami River.

The goal of this project is to commission a design that highlights or reveals something unique about the recreational, environmental, or aesthetic beauty of the area. The design should serve as a focal point, yet be integrated with the surroundings. This aesthetic improvement will visually connect downtown businesses, the local neighborhood, river enthusiasts, and naturally, art lovers.

Deadline for entry is December 8, 2014.

The call for proposals is for the design only, and the mural does not need to take up the entire wall.  For complete details, download the Call for Submissions form here.

Artists whose designs are selected as Semi-Finalists, will be invited to work with a prequalified painting contractor to create a final Design/Install proposal. Semi-Finalists who submit a complete final Design/Install proposal will receive a $1,500 stipend. The final selected artist will be awarded an additional $5,000 upon completion of the mural.
