Mural Arts: Leader(s) for Youth Mini Camp

Mural Arts: Leader(s) for Youth Mini Camp

This Deadline Expired: Monday, May 20, 2019

The City of Philadelphia Division of Housing and Community Development (DHCD) is seeking an artist or artist team to lead a youth mural “mini camp” at the Diamond Recreation Center between June 17 and 28, 2019. The youth mural “mini camp” is related to a broad public art project being developed for the areas in and around three SEPTA Regional Rail underpasses in the North Central Choice Neighborhood in North Philadelphia. The artworks are part of a long-term, multi-faceted series of investments in physical, community and economic activities in the area of the Norris Apartments, a historic public housing development that is being modernized by the Philadelphia Housing Authority.

The mural “mini camp” is an important early action in a process that is expected to be completed fourteen months from now. The “mini camp” will be designed and facilitated by the artist, with support from the Mural Arts Philadelphia Community Murals team. It will provide programming for youth during the first few weeks of summer, between when school end and when summer programs begin, and result in a visible temporary art project, and generate excitement for the forthcoming public art initiative.

The mural “mini camp” is being managed by Mural Arts Philadelphia on behalf of DCHD. Mural Arts will manage the community engagement process; production and installation of the temporary artwork; and coordination with Parks and Recreation (use of the recreation center), DCHD (sponsoring agency), and any agencies related to permissions for installing the temporary artwork.

Acrylic and watercolor grids and overlapping lines, gestured brush strokes and bold color are the first impressions when seeing the new work by Patricia Ingersoll. Ingersoll continues her studies of the merging of organic and geometric elements in nature and how they compare and contrast with the human condition. Her explorations of subjects found in nature, such as water, dense woods, vines, plants introduces challenges in the process of deconstructing the pictorial plane, or breaking it apart, in order to reconstruct it as individual, but equal parts. Through this process of mapping and diagramming with line, she is exploring and recording where these elements intersect pictorially.
