Call for Mural Proposals

The Des Plaines Arts Council announces an open call for proposals for an outdoor mural to be installed on the Frisbie Senior Center building, located at 52 East Northwest Highway, Des Plaines, Illinois 60016.

The images should address themes of intergenerational and community activities in Des Plaines. The Des Plaines Arts Council has budgeted $5,000 for this commission, to cover the costs of materials, installation, and artists fees.

The call for proposals will be open until July 29, 2024. The review of proposals and selection process is scheduled to be completed by August 15, 2024. Installation should be planned for completion by the end of October 2024.

Proposals should include detailed information about the artist(s), including sample images of the work to be installed, examples of previous work by the artist(s) that represent similar previously completed projects, complete details and information on all materials to be used, including all supplies and equipment, and any assistants who will be involved in the installation. Additional information may be requested as part of the evaluation process. The artist will be expected to furnish a Certificate of Insurance for the project listing the Frisbie Senior Center as “Additional Insured.”
