We believe that public art is a powerful way to bring people together to celebrate life, preserve heritage and pass on a beautiful legacy.
CALL FOR ARTIST
Spirit of Pella is looking for an artist or artist team to produce a large-scale mural on the back exterior walls of the Blush building at 635 Franklin Street which wraps around into the Cellar Peanut Pub beer garden and courtyard. There are 5 separate walls.
Wall dimensions are approximate.
Southwest wall: 16′ x 15′
Loading Dock wall: 8′ x 18′
Southeast wall: 28′ x 20′
Cellar Peanut Pub Beer Garden wall: 36′ x 23′
Cellar Peanut Pub Courtyard wall: 14′ x 23′
For this project, the goal of the mural design is to bring the community and attract visitors to the Downtown Pella District and represent Pella with a vibrant, cool, edgy vibe. Beautification and providing a unique photo-opp is best suited for these goals leaving the project neutral in subjects such as social, cultural and political issues.
Submission Deadline: June 30, 2023
This mural is part of Spirit of Pella’s mission to enhance under utilized spaces and create opportunities for people to connect through public art, events, and a magical holiday season.
