EPB invites local artists to submit bids for a new community mural project along 10th Street. The central theme for the mural is "The Soul of MLK - How artists visualize the heartbeat and soul of MLK in arts, music and culture" to highlight the history, heritage and significance of Downtown Chattanooga's Martin Luther King Boulevard area.
The open call ends Friday at 4 p.m.
The project committee will choose nine murals in total. Members of the committee represent EPB and other project partners: ArtsBuild, Association of Visual Arts, Bessie Smith Cultural Center, City of Chattanooga's Public Art Chattanooga, Chattanooga Community Kitchen, RISE Chattanooga, River City Company, Urban League of Greater Chattanooga and University of Tennessee - Chattanooga.
Artists will be notified of their selection and will receive support from ArtsBuild if needed. They will also be awarded a supplies budget as well as a service fee for their work.
