Pre-screened qualified artists will be eligible to compete for Paint It, Fairfax! mural projects.

Artists chosen for the database will be notified by CRS staff and will be placed on a mailing list for alerts regarding upcoming mural projects in the County’s CRDs/CRAs.

Artist criteria for each “Call for Artists” will be established and approved by CRS. The requirements will be published with the “Call for Artists” request. Muralists will be asked to submit their portfolio, resume, and any other relevant body of work that illustrates the artist’s capabilities. The criteria may be modified yearly at the discretion of CRS. Preference will be given to local and regional artists. This pre-screening process helps ensure that candidates meet the program’s minimum qualifications. It is possible for muralists not chosen for the database to still compete for specific projects through the program’s “Call for Project Submissions” process (see Appendix II).

(Note: No Deadline, this is an ongoing opportunity)

The Norfolk Public Art Commission seeks to match funds up to $25,000 to create Public Private Partnerships to create public art in Norfolk, VA.

CONTEXT: Public art is a valuable tool for creating dynamic and sustainable places. Art displayed prominently at locations within the community serves as an effective tool for creating unique and diverse destinations. Public art can also bring added texture to otherwise indistinguishable areas. Funded by 1% of the City of Norfolk’s Capital Improvement budget, the Norfolk Public Art Program has been successfully commissioning public art for the past twelve years in downtown, parking garages, the zoo, light rail stations, community centers and a variety of other public spaces.

PROJECT DESCRIPTION: We are seeking private commercial developers who want to enhance their development project with public art. The Norfolk Public Art Commission will match up to $25,000 for each project.

PROJECT SITE: Artwork must be placed within Norfolk city limits at the private development site where it can be experienced by the maximum number of people.

SIZE/MEDIA: Artwork size and materials will be determined by the project site(s). Artwork must be fabricated in durable, permanent materials that are safe and easily maintained. Artwork will become the property of the City of Norfolk and will be maintained by the City.

PROJECT FUNDS: The total budget for the completed artwork will be a minimum of $50,000 with $25,000 from City Public Art funds and $25,000 or more from the developer.

TO APPLY: All commercial developers and foundations are eligible. Please submit a letter of interest to Karen Rudd, City Hall, 810 Union St., Room 409 Marketing and Communications, Norfolk, Virginia 23510 or email karen.rudd@norfolk.gov. Candidates will be interviewed prior to final selection. There is no fee to apply.
