Call for Artists: Round Hill Mural Project.
The Town of Round Hill and Round Hill Arts Center are organizing a public art competition for murals to be installed in the Town Park. We're seeking proposals from area artists for the design of several 4' x 8' murals - the final number will depend upon the number and quality of artists' submissions. Paint the town -- or show us your interpretation of our theme, "Life in Western Loudoun."
Mural Proposals will be initially evaluated by the Mural Committee of the Round Hill Arts Center before final approval by the Round Hill Town Council. We hope at least some of the murals will be installed in time to celebrate the 14th Annual Round Hill Hometown Festival on May 28, 2016. Each winning artist will receive an honorarium of $200 for their work.
This competition is open to any individual or group. Each artist or group may submit up to three design proposals. Each submitted design must also include a work plan and budget (under $300) for its creation. The winning murals will be created on 4' x 8' plywood sheets and installed outdoors. They must be able to withstand the elements. Any construction proposal (i.e., a mosaic or other technique) must take this into account. The finished murals will become the property of the Town of Round Hill. Artists must register and pay an entry fee of $15 at www.roundhillartscenter.org and submit their designs by March 1, 2016. Learn more at www.roundhillartscenter.org.
