Trenton, New Jersey Asphalt Art Mural Artist RFQ

Trenton, New Jersey Asphalt Art Mural Artist RFQ

This Deadline Expired: Thursday, April 29, 2021

Artworks Trenton Inc., Trenton’s visual art center, is seeking expressions of interest from qualified artists for an asphalt art project to be painted at the crosswalks and intersection in front of the main entrance to the Trenton Transit Center, the intersection of South Clinton Avenue and Barlow Street/Raoul Wallenberg Avenue. The crosswalk/intersection art will be the centerpiece of Stepping Into Tomorrow, a partnership between Artworks and the City of Trenton for the beautification and improvement of this busy and prominent public intersection in the city. Stepping Into Tomorrow has been funded by a $25,000 Bloomberg Philanthropies Asphalt Art Grant. Trenton is one of 16 municipalities nationwide to receive funding in 2020 from Bloomberg Philanthropies for asphalt art projects.
This is a regional call, open to artists living and/or working within a 100 mile radius of Trenton. An artistic or community connection to Trenton will be considered a plus for artists but not a requirement.

Artists are required to submit an artist statement of not more than 250 words, a one-page CV or bio, and a minimum of 6 images of prior work, up to a maximum of 12 work images. Without these three components, artist submissions will be deemed incomplete and discarded. Deadline has been extended to April 29th!

My art is a hybrid of the figurative and the abstract.The satire and cartoon imagery of my youthful artwork began to evolve as I grew more familiar with German Expressionism, American Social Realism and Abstract Expressionism. The sketches of people drawn from life that I do almost daily provide constant fodder for my humorous paintings, drawings and prints. My work is a synthesis of humor and fine art. I am quite serious about being silly. My goal is to create art that is sown from the depths of comic outrageousness, satirical observation and mild misanthropy. If Matisse had the “sun in his belly," I have a banana peel permanently attached to my shoe!
