Request for Proposal – Camden County Historical Society

Deadline March 1: Theme: The Camden County Historical Society is seeking an artist to create a mural to be featured in our Camden County Museum space. This mural would be a time line of Camden City history from the early 1600’s to modern day. The goals of this mural are to both serve as an introduction of Camden City history for our visitors, as well as highlight key events, buildings and immigration patterns into the city. We want to use this as a teaching opportunity for our visitors to get a snapshot of basic history of the city, as well as have representation of all groups of people who currently reside here. The rough dimensions of the wall the mural would be featured along is 9’ x 22’. We would prefer not to have this mural painted directly onto the wall, but be constructed in a way that it can travel to different spaces to be displayed, such as local libraries or city hall. Attached are rough drawings from an artist previously working with us on this project. These drawings are a rough basis of what we are interested in. Timeline: Mural must be completed by May 1st, 2016 in order to be revealed at a Grand Reopening event for the Historical Society. The ability to work quickly is key. Budget: $2,500 Qualifications: 2-3 examples of other public murals you have completed. Application Deadline: March 1st, 2016 Contact: Please submit applications to: Kimi Tallant educationdirect@cchsnj.org
