Artist RFP: Bazaar After Dark Mural

***You will find the submission form link at the bottom of this page, please read before applying***
 

Mission

Bazaar After Dark (a program of Pulse Young Professionals Network and the Fox Cities Chamber of Commerce) is dedicated to revitalizing and drawing positive attention to underutilized business districts in the Fox Valley, while fostering community collaborations through art, music, and common experiences. Pulse Young Professionals Network is partnering with Habitat for Humanity to celebrate their ‘Rock the Block’ neighborhood builds in 2018. The public art component of the night market is a way of visually demonstrating our commitment to the renewal and growth of each neighborhood, in hopes that the community will join us in investing in its prosperity.

 

Artist eligibility

Any artist or small team of artists interested in creating a two dimensional mural, to be completed on Wednesday September 12, 2018, may submit a proposal in accordance with the guidelines provided below.
