Call for Artists: Requests for Qualifications
The Holdingford Legion (Stearns County) is seeking a muralist to create a custom art piece, reflective of four (of the five) branches of the military. Although the project completion date is flexible, ideally it would be installed prior to June 30, 2020 to allot time for a small unveiling/dedication during the town's annual festival.
The budget for the project is estimated to be between $3,500 to $5,000; funds are anticipated to be raised by the community over the next year. Additional grant funds may be dedicated to this project based on availability.
The wall is comprised of masonry block measuring approximately 11 feet high by 57 feet wide (see image above) that is adjacent to the Stearns Bank of Holdingford’s drive through.
At this time, interested artists should send a letter of interest, including their name, estimated project cost (labor and materials) and a link to past work (or portfolio) to [email protected] on or before September 15, 2019 by 5 p.m.
For additional questions feel free to contact me by email ([email protected]) or phone (320-333-1579). Email inquiries preferred.
