[ARCHIVED] Public Art Commission Seeking Artists for Mural Honoring the “5” Royales

The Winston-Salem/Forsyth County Public Art Commission is seeking experienced mural painters to create a mural of the “5” Royales rock and roll band on an exterior wall of the Big Winston Warehouse building at 724 N. Trade St.

The mural would be painted in full color on the brick wall that faces the sidewalk, be inspired by the “Dedicated to You” album cover and measure 34 feet by 18 feet.

The project is being funded by the city of Winston-Salem. A budget of $19,999 has been allocated to cover design fees, labor, supplies, insurance, wall preparation, scaffolding, transportation, lift equipment rental and any other associated costs.

This is a local competition open to artists over 18 years old who live in the Southeast, or teams with one member over the age of 18. Winston-Salem artists, as well as minority and female artists will be given priority in the selection of an artist. Proposals must be submitted by noon on Monday, July 31. The artist or team of artists will be selected in the fall.

More information about the call for designs, including the selection process, the selection committee members and specific requirements for submissions, is posted at CityofWS.org/PublicArt.
