119 Gallery requests proposals from our members for a mural on the front of the gallery. This is our sixth annual mural competition. Previous artists’ works were executed in 2008-2012.

Project Description: This will be a multi-artist, multi-panel mural on Chelmsford Street. Highly visible, this is a primary vehicle corridor to downtown Lowell with extensive foot traffic. The mural will remain in place for 2 years.

We are opening the call to all 119 Gallery members, and dividing the mural into (10) 9′ high x 2′ wide vertical bands, one per artist. We hope for more responses than ever, as no one artist is responsible for painting the entire facade! We look forward to a mural that reflects Lowell, our gallery community, and our mission. An open theme, artists are encouraged to submit work that is appropriate to the site, and reflects the character and diversity of the gallery.

Selection Process: A committee appointed by our trustees will select the 10 winning proposals.

Items To Submit:
1) Sketch(es) of proposed work
2) Description of work and brief narrative
3) Artist’s resume
4) Images of 3 previous works
5) Estimated budget for materials

Timeline: 119 Gallery will announce the winners by Sunday May 25. Work begins on Monday May 26, our annual Memorial Day BBQ. Work is to be completed for Lowell Folk Festival, by Friday July 25, 2014.

Submit materials directly to the gallery Tue-Sat 12noon-5pm, or to
