FY18 MuralsDC Graffiti and Aerosol Mural Artists Request for Qualifications (RFQ)
The DC Commission on the Arts and Humanities (CAH), in partnership with the DC Department of Public Works (DPW), seeks graffiti and aerosol mural artists and artist teams to design, create and install aerosol murals as part of the MuralsDC program. Selected artists will be required to work with youth interested in graffiti art (ages 14-18) by introducing and refining each student’s artistic skill in the discipline of graffiti style sketch work and aerosol mural painting.
The MuralsDC program was established to replace illegal graffiti with artistic works, revitalize sites within communities in the District of Columbia, and to teach young people the art of aerosol painting. This initiative aims to positively engage the District’s youth by teaching proper professional art techniques, providing supplies, and a legal means to practice and perform artistic skills in a way that promotes respect for public and private property and community awareness. There are currently more than seventy (70) MuralsDC projects across all eight wards of the District of Columbia.
