Artist RFP: Bazaar After Dark Menasha public 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) 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 the City of Menasha, BOOM (Business Owners of Menasha) and Habitat for Humanity to kick off their ‘Rock the Block’ neighborhood build in Menasha & Neenah this spring. The public mural 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.
