Call for Artists

. May 17, 2012.

The City of Ann Arbor Public Art Commission (AAPAC) has announced a new mural to be created at Allmendinger Park as the first artwork for a proposed Pilot Mural Program. The AAPAC seeks Statements of Qualifications (SOQ) from artists or muralists interested in designing the mural in this beloved neighborhood park. The unique mural space will be the surface on the columns of the park’s shelter house. The 12 discontinuous and curvilinear surfaces will create various perspectives for the mural and will not be seen entirely from any viewpoint. Prospective artists are encouraged to visit the site before submitting and the SOQ’s must be received by Tuesday, November 15.  Allmendinger Park is located on Pauline Blvd. between Hutchins and Edgewood. For more info call 734-794-6310 ext. 43730 or visit www.a2gov.org/aapachttps://www.a2gov.org/aapac
