Art on the Streets celebrates the power of art in public places, while turning the streets of Downtown Colorado Springs into a yearlong outdoor sculpture gallery. More than 300 artworks have been exhibited Downtown since AOTS began in 1998, and the district is home to more than 50 permanent works, over 30 of which have been purchased through AOTS.
Art on the Streets is accepting mural proposals for the 2020 exhibit. Staff have identified a portfolio of priority sites for murals throughout the Downtown area – please view photos below. If additional information is needed, please email firstname.lastname@example.org at least two weeks in advance of the submission deadline (02/10/2020).
Mural proposals may reference one of these sites specifically or may be submitted for consideration for any available site. Though an in-situ presentation of proposed mural is preferred for site-specific proposals, concept drawings or samples of previous work are also fine – it is understood that final dimensions will vary based on site selected.
Artists should note that acceptance of mural proposals will be pending approval of site owner in addition to exhibit jurors.
Artist must specify whether paint or vinyl laminate will be used to render the image on the selected wall – it will be Artist’s responsibility to purchase paint or order laminate; Art on the Streets will fund installation costs as needed including lifts, scaffolding and skilled labor.
Please note the submission deadline for the 22nd Annual Art on the Streets exhibit is February 10, 2020. Artists are requested to make all submissions via callforentry.org.
Note: Photos may not display well on mobile devices; please contact Claire (above) for additional info. All sites are captioned with their street address and can be searched on Google Street View for a more holistic understanding of the site.
