Johnson City, TN
Public Art: Mural Project
- Budget: $17,500
Eligibility: This opportunity is open to all professional artists over the age of 18.
The Johnson City Public Art Committee will commission a professional artist to paint a large scale narrative mural that addresses the theme of “Bounty.” Our region and especially our downtown is replete with a variety of natural resources. We are quickly becoming an outdoor recreation destination. We have plentiful and robust agricultural resources and great cultural and historical offerings. Our residents are warm and inviting. We would like for the mural to reflect the myriad and bountiful richness of our community. We are looking for proposals that convey the dynamic energy of renewal and the sense of community developing in our downtown area. Proposals should convey a clear sense of place. The chosen wall at 120 Commerce Street is historically rich and is situated adjacent to Founders Park. It will serve as an iconic focal point for the park and will be visible to a variety of pedestrians and downtown visitors. It is also visible from State of Franklin Rd which will further entice visitors to our downtown.
