Artistry Anew has partnered with Grupo Haddad in seeking a muralist to design and execute a 14ft wide by 40ft high outdoor mural in Uptown Dallas.

The style and subject matter need to pay homage to the high fashion, high glamor, metropolitan feel of Uptown, Dallas's premier nightlife and shopping district, but is otherwise open to the artist's vision. All muralists must have prior experience designing murals and needs to showcase past work before being considered.

After selection, muralists will be given a  total budget of $25,000 with 60% paid up front. This budget will be used to cover the costs of materials and equipment in order to maximize the potential of their artistic creation. Artists from outside DFW will need to supply their own lodging and transportation.

Submissions will close on November 22, 2022. Once the muralist is selected, they will have from December to January to begin and finish the project. The finished product will be publicly visible to DFW residents. It should cover at least 80% of the 14’40’ space. The mural can additionally extend across the rest of the parking garage as well as the street facing wall at the artist’s discretion working within the established budget

Either the artist will be executing the mural themselves or will be on site directing their crew team as project manager with full responsibility for the project. 

Prior outdoor mural experience is required and the artist must submit what materials they will be using to ensure their outdoor rated longevity and a protective coating must be applied. The artist will be responsible for all appropriate paint, supplies, tools, crew, and equipment (including scaffolding or boom lift).
