Call for Artists: Emeryville Public Art Mural Project

Sherwin Ave Mural RFP

The City of Emeryville invites artists, as individuals or teams, to submit proposals for the design and implementation of a mural project at 1451 Sherwin Avenue as part of the Emeryville Public Art Mural Program adopted November 17, 2020. The Public Art Mural Program provides Art in Public Places funding for the installation of murals on private properties. 

The site at 1451 Sherwin was prioritized for public investment as a readily visible location on a key bicycle and pedestrian corridor near major new residential developments. The site is visible from the Horton Street Bike Boulevard, is on a new walking route to a Bike-Pedestrian bridge currently under construction, and located directly across from a major new development. The site therefore presents a unique opportunity for artists to highlight this key location in the heart of an expanding mixed use neighborhood on a Citywide and regional bicycle corridor. 

SUBMISSION DEADLINE: March 19, 2021
