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.

Sharing the experiences I have had with race and gender is a catalyst for my work. My experience growing up very protected in a race not completely my own, was not concerning to me as a child. When I was introduced to a mixed race population that was very concerned with labeling and grouping people, the experience was unsettling. From that point, I had to think about race and culture and how they related to my daily performance.

"The forms from nature that I have drawn from for these sculptures are taken from insect life-segmented, hard shelled bodies, robotic and armor coated, yet able to instantly take flight. The large scale of these otherwise small creatures comes from reality and fantasy of the prehistoric world."
