The Murals at Crockett Row
2018 Public Art Project

OPPORTUNITY: The Fort Worth Community Arts Center is seeking artists to submit proposals for murals to be displayed at three prime locations in the Crockett Row at West 7th destination. Artists are invited to stretch their imagination in the proposed mural location to highlight the creativity, community, and urban identity of Fort Worth.

 

OBJECTIVE: These proposed murals will set Crockett Row apart in the community by forming an accessible, outdoor gallery that creates a natural complement to the Cultural District of Fort Worth. The murals will create a new definition for Crockett Row while embracing its uniqueness. Artists should reflect on why Crockett Row stands out as Fort Worth’s newest hub for community, art, and innovation in the development of their murals.

 

GUIDELINES 

Artists should create a visual impact that accentuates the mural locations and their surrounding space through an original use of color, shape, and light.

Artists should pay careful attention on each mural location’s distinctive qualities and work on a mural that brings those qualities to the forefront in compelling way.

Due to the nature of the space murals cannot display nudity, sexual or political themes.


PROPOSED LOCATIONS:

North Central Parking Deck (1)

This scaling wall offers great visibility and a premium canvas. Artists may think of how the use of complex colors and design to make this area loud and impactful.

Approximately 60’ H X 32’ W

 

North Central Parking Deck (2)

A great canvas with good visibility, the intent for this space is a unique typography mural that Fort Worth can be proud of. (Can also consider merging both locations to be one cohesive piece.)

Approximately 18’ H X 70‘ W

 

Food Hall Mural

Artists should design a patterned, colorful style to add interest to the area. With all the traffic in the Food Hall, this will offer a great touchpoint for those visiting Crockett Row.

Approximately 25’ H X 80’ W

Acceptance of this contract is a specific acceptance of the terms listed. Objects exhibited in the FWCAC will be given great care. Unless the artist wishes to provide his/her own insurance coverage, the FWCAC will insure all exhibitions under its existing insurance policy, which covers up to $500,000, against all risks of physical loss or damage while on the premises during the period of the exhibition. If the exhibitor(s) wish to provide his/her own insurance, such actions constitute the release of the FWCAC from any liability in connection with the exhibition. Coverage is not authorized past the exhibition and artwork may not be stored at the FWCAC unless prior arrangements have been made. The FWCAC allows visitors to photograph works of art. Artists are required to contribute 25% from work sold in the exhibition. By submitting your artwork, you are agreeing to the terms above.
