Alleypalooza: Call for Artists

The City of Lafayette and its community partners are currently seeking visual artists to collaborate in the creation of a character mural to be installed on both sides of the alley located between the former Ding-a-Ling (519 Main), and the Lahr Apartments off of Main Street in downtown Lafayette.

Artists will work together to install the mural entitled, 'Extended Family.' The theme of the mural is that of a family photograph, and artists are asked to submit figurative imagery to be included in the mural. We are seeking original, diverse, creative styles. Subjects for imagery can range from local people, icons and pets to cartoons, aliens, and robots. Artist stipends of $500 are available for up to 12 artists to be chosen.

Interested artists should complete the form located http://bit.ly/1JACYrx and upload your different character ideas to http://bit.ly/1FPAhCR. Deadline for submissions is 1/6/16 at 6pm ET. Applicants will receive notification of selection for the project on or before 1/29/16. Artists will be expected to reproduce their submissions in durable outdoor media during installation phases beginning in May and completed and dedicated during Alleypalooza.

Image specifications: Upload jpeg images with these specifications: 300dpi and 1500 pixels on the longest side, saved as: lastname_01.jpg, lastname_02.jpg, etc.

Site Visit: Interested artists are invited to do a site visit of the location on 10/28/15. The group will meet at the Tippecanoe Arts Federation, 638 North Street, Lafayette, IN, at 6 p.m. ET, and walk over to the specific site.
Eligibility: this project is open to US residents 18 and older. Preference will be given to local artists or artists with local ties to the Lafayette Community with large scale painting and/or street art experience.
