Skatepark File Folder Artist Call - Summer 2019
The Laramie Public Art Coalition, Relative Theatrics and Friends of Laramie Skatepark are working in partnership to seek one artist or artist team, to paint a mural on the File Folder near the Skatepark in LaBonte Park, Laramie, WY. The selected artist/artist team will create work on the front and back of the File Folder. The approximate size of each the front and back surfaces are 16’ x 20’ for a total of 320 sq. ft.
The File Folder was installed in LaBonte Park as a contained site for muralists. It has been available for anyone to paint on their own time with their own paint and materials since 2004. LPAC and its partners are working with the Laramie Parks and Recreation board to identify an artist who would create a new mural to renew and transform the File Folder in response to the Skatepark Stage event by Relative Theatrics on Saturday, June 22, 2019. The intention being that the newly created artwork be displayed for the long-term (possibly up to one year). The artwork will be created live during a theatrical reading of a scene of a play on the above date. This will require some communication with the director of Relative Theatrics in advance of the event. The concept and design of the mural may be inspired by the performance; however, the mural should reflect the unique opportunity for Theater in the Skatepark, as well as, the energy and identity of community using the area around the File Folder.
Eligibility: This is an invitational call to individual artists or artist teams residing in Laramie and Albany County regardless of race, color, religion, national origin, gender, age, military status, sexual orientation, marital status, or physical or mental disability.
Deadline: Required materials submitted for consideration by 11:59 p.m. on May 9
Project Budget: up to $1,919 inclusive of materials and time spent in collaboration with the Relative Theatrics director.
