Gym Mural - Call to Artists
Joyner Park Community Center Gym Mural
Final Selection Team
An Artist Selection Committee comprised of members of the Wake Forest Public Art Commission, PRCR Director Ruben Wall, and Recreation Center Manager Shawn Monday will select the winner.
The Parks, Recreation and Cultural Resources Department invites Wake Forest Guild of Artist members, 9-12 grade students living in Wake Forest, and artists residing within the Town of Wake Forest and its ETJ (extraterritorial jurisdiction) to submit one to three pieces of original art to the Joyner Park Gym Mural Contest. There is no entry fee.
One artists will be selected and receive an honorarium of $100.00. The selected artist will have their art on display for up to three (3) years on the wall in the gym at Joyner Park Community Center.
All artwork must be an original piece presented in either landscape or portrait style. The art should have ties back to the Wake Forest community but is open to interpretation. Submitted art must fit within the societal boundaries of good taste. Selected pieces of artwork will need to have the capability to be scanned into an electronic image, then transferred into vinyl to be applied to the half wall in Joyner Park Community Center. Please keep in mind the wall is very long and not very tall while creating your artwork.
The Town of Wake Forest Parks, Recreation, and Cultural Resources department wants to help promote our local artists while connecting the community center to the community it serves.
