Trompe L'oeil Art Advocacy Bus Wrap Design—RFQ

Deadline:  Wednesday, December 14, 2022 (mid-night MT)

Design Stipend: $300

Design Budget: $1,200

 

Project Description

Create a wrap design for Central Florida Arts Advocates going to Tallahassee for Arts Advocacy Days beginning on March 21, 2023. The selected artist will receive $1,200. The bus will remain in circulation in Central Florida for approximately six months.

Orange County Arts & Cultural Affairs in partnership with GoPegasus and United Arts of Central Florida seek one or more artists or artist team(s) to develop an artwork design to be used to wrap a luxury coach bus with a trompe l'oeil design that will encourage people to take photos (see examples).

Artwork must be submitted in a digital media format and should be representative of the thriving arts and culture scene in Central Florida. Artwork must be “instagrammable” using a trompe l'oeil effect giving greater depth to the work. The completed artwork will serve as background that would entice people to take photos and selfies. This artwork can contain words, but does not need to include a logo.

 

Background

Orange County is a rapidly growing metropolitan area of several million residents, and over seventy-million visitors that contains the City of Orlando and a dozen other municipalities.  We are a minority majority community with over 160 languages spoken in the public schools.  A recent study indicates that by 2030 Orlando may be the most diverse major metro area in the world. The county values innovation, collaboration and inclusion.
