Call to Artists: New gateway mural RFP, proposals due Feb. 12

Aurora Downtown’s Streetscape committee will be funding a second gateway mural designed to welcome visitors into downtown. The organization of downtown business and property owners is seeking artists for proposals due February 12.

The theme of the mural will be “Aurora Unity” and should promote pride in the community and advance the objectives of the Aurora Downtown organization.

The mural will be located on the near East Side and be situated so as to be seen when approaching downtown.  Aurora Downtown will provide the exact location and size to the artists selected to submit final designs.  

Aurora Downtown is inviting artists to submit a rough sketch, color palette, and a brief statement regarding the concept behind the design and prior related work experience. Artists should also submit a portfolio of prior work. Up to three artists will be offered a paid contract to submit a full-color, final design.

The organization commissioned its first gateway mural at 5 S. Lake St. last year.
