Open-Call for Local Artists

Hello CAC community,

My studio is launching an exciting new project this summer and we are looking for local artists who are open to doing murals. We are specially looking for street artists with an interest and background in graffiti. Below are some details about the project:

  • The mural site is indoor with a dimension of about 16’ x 10’.
  • Your work will be up for about 2 weeks.
  • Only 3 artists will be selected for this project.
  • Every artist will be paid an artist fees for their participation.
  • We will do professional documentation of your work and record an artist interview.

The timeline of this project is from May 1st - June 30th. You must have a 3-4 day availability within that time to put up your work and then bring it down. You must be a local Chicago artist to participate.

For the selection process, we are looking for the following material from you:

  • 5-6 images of your past work to show us your aesthetic.
  • Have you painted on abandoned buildings or at conspicuous locations before? Share these images with us.
  • Your Instagram handle.
  • A headshot.
  • What piqued your interest in this project? (1 to 2 lines)
  • What makes you and your style unique? (1 to 2 lines)
