L.I. Arts Council at Freeport – Call for Muralist
In collaboration with Mount Sinai South Nassau, we are thrilled to announce a call for mural artists to submit their concept for a mural to be created for an outside wall of Mount Sinai South Nassau. Guidelines for the mural are that it be apolitical and non-controversial. We envision the mural depicting children’s sports, inclusive of all genders, with multiple cultures identified (sports such as gymnastics, hockey, ice skating, diving, skate- boarding, soccer/rugby, beach volleyball, etc.). Although any style or artistic expression is welcome, the preference is for a photo-realism/3D approach. We are seeking colorful and innovative artists to create an inviting, vibrant mural for clients of Mount Sinai South Nassau when approaching the Emergency Room entrance.
Submission deadline for your mural proposal is June 15, 2022
Interested artists should ONLY contact the L.I. Arts Council at Freeport to receive the prospectus and submission guidelines (firstname.lastname@example.org). Your email memo line should say Request for Mural.
