[ARCHIVED] Large Mural Opportunity at the Las Cruces Museum of Art

Large Mural Opportunity at LCMOA

The City of Las Cruces Museum System invites artist/artist team proposals for design and creation of a mural to be placed at the entryway of the Museum of Art. The work’s theme should be inspired by the welcoming nature of the Museum of Art, which hosts exhibitions, public programs, and classes of a wide spectrum of art styles and mediums. The work should reflect our community. Artists/teams are required to develop and submit a written concept for the mural art installation. A stipend of $5,000 is available for the selected artist for completion of the project. Interested artists can email gcourts@las-cruces.org for a complete prospectus including images and dimensions of the proposed mural site. Final submissions must be emailed back no later than April 19, 2021. Submissions sent after April 19, 2021 will not be accepted. 

All submissions will be reviewed by jury process. The selected artist/art team shall enter into a contractual agreement to design, produce, and install the mural in collaboration with museum staff. The final art piece must be complete by June 30, 2021.

For more information about this call for mural art proposals, contact Garland Courts, Exhibits Manager at gcourts@las-cruces.org or call 575-528-3438.
