Call for Artists - $1,000...


The City Center Partnership/CityArt Committee and Twin Rivers Council for the Arts seek to commission multiple artists to work with the “2013 Traffic Signal Cabinet Mural Project” on numerous locations in Mankato, MN. 



The murals are intended to enhance the aesthetics of the City Center, increase pedestrian traffic and extend public art to new areas o the Mankato City Center using present traffic signal control cabinets already in place. The Traffic Signal Control Cabinets are functioning units and need to be opened periodically by utility personnel.




The project is open to any and all artists.  All eligible applicants will be considered.  In an effort to encourage young emerging artists in our community, the project is setting aside one Traffic Signal Control Cabinet to be completed by a young artist, age 18 years and under.  The same guidelines and submission process apply to this artist. 


Submissions will be considered through Thursday, August 1, 2013. A selection committee will select artists for a maximum of 10 available locations on August 5, 2013.
