Knoxville Mural Program Request for Proposals


The Public Arts Committee is pleased to announce a Request for Proposals for murals in downtown Knoxville! Applications are available on the City of Knoxville’s Purchasing Department website here. All proposals must be received by 11:00 AM on February 15, 2016.

The City of Knoxville seeks proposals from artists or artist teams for site-specific, two-dimensional murals to enliven Knoxville’s urban landscape. The contracted project will include design, materials, and installation of up to three designs. Artists may submit proposals for individual locations or for all three sites; the City reserves the right to make multiple awards.

Three sites have been identified by the Committee for this project; more information about each site is available in the Appendix section of the application. Designs selected for installation will become part of the City’s permanent public art collection. This opportunity is open to all artists or artist teams over the age of 18. The committee encourages applications from artists working in both established and experimental art forms.
