The Dekalb Perimeter Community Improvement Districts (PCIDs), in collaboration with the City of Dunwoody, MARTA Artbound, and Living Walls is seeking qualifications from artists or artist teams for the commission of a site-specific outdoor public mural at the Dunwoody MARTA Station on the south side of the station’s parking garage. The mural will be installed in 2023.
Artists will be reviewed by a selection committee composed of Dunwoody Art Commission members, community members, senior art and design professionals, MARTA’s Director of Art in Transit, and PCID staff members. The selection committee will pre-select three artists to prepare a detailed concept for the mural. The selected artists will be given a $1,000 honorarium each (mockup fee).
The final selected artist or artist team will be awarded $50,000 (artist fee). The additional production costs include but are not limited to materials, installation, assistants and site manager fees, insurance requirements, etc. These production costs will be covered and managed by Living Walls. Artists must demonstrate the ability to execute work suitable for outdoors with the ability to withstand the elements of the local climate, as well as interaction with the general public.
You may consider a modest donation — however much you can afford, when it comes from the heart, it’s the kind of gesture that makes us warm with appreciation.
