Call for Muralist – New Project featuring Black Activist History in Philadelphia

This Deadline Expired: Friday, April 2, 2021

The Colored Conventions Project and Penn State’s Center for Black Digital Research/#DigBlk are thrilled to announce their partnership with Mural Arts Philadelphia! They are inviting muralists to submit proposals for the first of a series of murals dedicated to the rich history of the little-known Colored Conventions movement, the earliest Black-led movement for civil and political rights—which lasted for well over half a century and was founded in Philadelphia in 1830.

The deadline for applications is April 2nd. The project will run through the summer and carry a $10,000 artist fee. Inquiries and submissions should be directed to community@muralarts.org.

Please share the request for proposals (attached below) with your contacts in the Black art world. They are especially interested in encouraging up-and-coming muralists with a commitment centering Black voices and movements for social justice to submit. They are co-hosting a live zoom informational session on March 29th at 6pm EST for artists to learn more about the Colored Conventions. Please register at: https://forms.gle/d7qiwyaUqe4UzhQCA.

Want to learn more about the convention movement? Visit ColoredConventions.org. More on the RFQ https://bit.ly/ccp-mural-artists. Follow them on twitter at @CCP_org @DigBlk @MuralArts.
