The Brookline Arts Center is seeking proposals for a temporary mural to be exhibited in our Annex Gallery in Fall 2021. Artists are invited to develop a plan for a site-specific temporary mural, based on any theme or narration they wish. The artist selected will design, create and exhibit their proposed installation.

All artists residing in the United States are eligible to apply. All applications must be entered online through the BAC’s submission form.

Project Details
The selected artist will create a site-specific temporary mural for the Brookline Arts Center’s Annex Gallery. Murals can not be painted directly on gallery walls, however the BAC is open to any proposed materials such as fabric, large panels, paper or any creative canvas of the artist’s choosing. We encourage artists to refer to our mission statement while devising their proposal. The selected artist will receive a stipend of $1,000. Artists are responsible for procurement of all materials. The BAC will assist with final installation.

Gallery Specifications
Proposals should be made in consideration of the BAC’s Annex Gallery space. Work size is limited to the space available within the Annex Gallery. The Annex Gallery is approximately 127 square feet and includes a hanging wall that is 12′ tall x 18′ long.
