    Deadline May 9: The City of Philadelphia Mural Arts Program, in partnership with Philadelphia Parks & Recreation and the Fairmount Park Conservancy, is proud to announce an exciting opportunity at The Oval for Summer 2016. For the past three summers, The Oval, located at Eakins Oval along the Benjamin Franklin Parkway in front of the Philadelphia Museum of Art, has been transformed into a fun and lively oasis with programming for people of all ages. Games and activities for kids, a beer garden under the trees, live music, an outdoor movie screen on the lawn, group yoga, a variety of food trucks to pick from each week and more are set up in an effort to reprogram the under-utilized site which functions as a parking lot during the rest of the year. The Oval becomes a flourishing park for five weeks and the mural sets the tone for the entire summer experience.

    This year, we would like The Oval project to consider Philadelphia’s role as the hearth of American democracy and the location of the 2016 Democratic National Convention, which will take place during the time The Oval is open for public use (the DNC is July 25-28, 2016). We are seeking artists or artist teams who have the capability of not only creating the large-scale, iconic design for which The Oval has become known, but also proposing a programming element that allows Oval visitors to engage in an activity related to civic discourse (the programming element should be reflected in the final design).

    BACKGROUND & SITE CONTEXT: Philadelphia Parks & Recreation, in partnership with the Fairmount Park Conservancy, revealed the City of Philadelphia’s new “Park on the Parkway” in July 2013. The eight acres of public space located on the Benjamin Franklin Parkway known as Philadelphia’s own “Avenue des Champs-Élysées,” Eakins Oval (2601 Benjamin Franklin Parkway) became The Oval, a park with community programming, events and activities. Designed to promote the Parkway as a neighborhood park for all Philadelphians, The Oval offers a wide array of activities and amenities, and features park spaces that all ages can easily access and enjoy. theovalphl.org

    DESIGN & PRODUCTION: The design and production phases are set up separately allowing for an artist/designer/team to design the mural with the option to have a production team execute the painting of the mural. Ideally, the artist is able to oversee the production but it is not a requirement; however, as a result, production fees are set up separately from the design fee. The project manager will work with the artist to assemble a production team. The production phase is approximately one week in July and begins after the site is cleared from the July 4th celebration. Opening Day is set for Friday, July 15th – the artist is expected to be in attendance at the Opening Day press event regardless of production participation.

    ELIGIBILITY: This call is open to established and emerging artists, designers, or an artist/design team from the Philadelphia region. It is preferred that the artist has a connection to Philadelphia, lives within the region, or lives close enough to commute regularly if selected. The selected artist will ideally be present during the production phase and must be in attendance for the Opening Day event.

    Phase 1: Artist Selection from RFQ
    Deadline for RFQ submissions: Friday, April 8, 2016 (NOON)
    Artist Selection Notifications: By Friday, April 15, 2016
