The theme of this mural is Unity and our vision is to involve the community in both the planning and creation of the work. The process will involve working with a diverse small group of community members, including students, and the Apex Police Department, to gather their input for the mural. The selected artist will design the image and after approval from the Town of Apex, will install/paint the mural with some assistance from a group of local students and community members.
The wall is 9 feet tall and 84 feet long. All of part of the wall can be used for the mural. The mural shall be permanently affixed to the surface and use materials suitable to withstand the elements for many years to come. All scaffolding, ladders, lifts, etc. will be the responsibility of the artist, as well as the supplies necessary to complete the project and clean-up of the site post installation.
Open to all professional artists creating original works of art, suitable to an exterior of a structure. Local, regional, and North Carolina based artists are specifically encouraged to apply.
