Municipal Mural Competition – Call for Submissions

The Municipality of the County of Antigonish is seeking proposals from individual artists or collectives for a large-scale design (approximately 8 feet high and 12 feet wide) to be placed on a community building in the Municipality of the County of Antigonish.

Professional and emerging artists throughout the local area of all mediums will be considered for this project.  The design of the image should reflect the arts and cultural activities in Antigonish and include the words “Municipality of the County of Antigonish.”

This competition will provide an opportunity for local artists to employ their imaginative abilities and create something that represents our community while further developing public spaces by designing a large-scale mural to be placed on a building in the Municipality.

Proposals will be accepted up to 4:00 pm July 17, 2015.  To submit a proposal, please send:

  • 5 – 10 images or audio/visual samples on CD-Rom or DVD
  • image/slide list including the artist’s name, title of work, medium, dimensions, and date of completion
  • current CV
  • design proposal and artist statement (no longer than one page)
  • copies of catalogue texts or reviews (if relevant)

Please send complete applications to Glenn Horne, Municipal Clerk Treasurer, 285 Beech Hill Road, Antigonish, NS, B2G 0B4.

This competition is being run concurrently with the Town’s mural competition; the same criteria and deadlines apply to both competitions.  An artist’s honorarium of $2,000 will be provided. This fee shall cover the cost of supplies, including the foam core medium.  The Municipality will provide for the base for the mural and will cover the cost of installation.
