NATIVE MURAL PROJECT APPLICATION /
The Eureka Street Art Festival is seeking Native Artists representing northern California tribes to be part of a Native Mural project during the 2020 Festival. The selected artists will each be given a space on one continuous wall, creating a large, impactful piece. We are still securing the wall for this project, and will announce when applications open soon.
The Festival is always striving to make Eureka's public art scene more diverse and inclusive. This large mural will be painted by local Native American artists to ensure their perspectives are represented in the local public art scene. We are grateful of rite support of the Native Cultures Fund to bring this project to fruition.
A committee of local Native leaders are leading this project to ensure that it comes from the communities that it is designed to benefit. While the ESAF team is responsible for coordination, legwork, and background tasks of making this mural a reality, the committee will coordinate community outreach and be making all artist selections.
Native Mural Project Information:
Artists must submit a rendering of their proposed mural with this application.
Artists must be available to paint their pieces during the Festival from August 10 - 15, 2020.
Selected Artists will be paid for their participation in the Festival (the amount is still being finalized). Half of the amount will be paid before the Festival, and the remainder will be paid once the mural is completed.
Artists are responsible for supplying their own paint, tools, and materials.
The Festival will supply lifts and scaffolding, all permits and insurance, and coordination.
Qualifying out of area artists will have travel fees reimbursed and will receive accommodations during the week.
Artists are welcome to apply using the general Festival application as well, but will only be hired to paint one mural during the Festival.
Artists for this project will be chosen by a committee of local Native leaders.
Artists will be notified of application status by the end of April.
