Are You an Artist??
WHAT: Abundance Food Co-op is looking to turn our blank canvas of a wall outside, in to an inspiring piece of mural art! The wall is 15’ 4” x 46’ 8” – depending on the submissions we receive, we can look in to splitting up wall space, if needed.
There is also a secondary wall near our Garage Door we could look at expanding to, approximately 9’ 4” x 21’ 4”.
We value Local, we value People, and we value Community. The Mural(s) must evoke a feeling of those ideals.
WHERE: We are located in the South Wedge neighborhood of Rochester NY. If you don’t know about the Co-op, check out our website (which you are on right now)!
WHEN: Our goal is to begin the wall mid-August, and for the project to be completed by the end of August (weather permitting).
WHO: Any artist in Rochester or the surrounding areas (no travel expenses are covered) can submit a design/idea and fee (your cost) for the wall.
PAYMENT: We are collecting money for our Mural Fund through in store Giveaways, Raffles, and Round Up donations (taken at the register).
If more money is needed than what we collect, a payment plan is possible, or store credit. We can, and will, work something out for the right artist/artists.
OTHER DETAILS: It is our intention to leave the Mural up at least for as long as we are here at this address. If we ever move buildings, we may have to paint over prior to leaving.
