2020 iDistricts Murals & Mosaics Project
Applications are currently being reviewed.
The Broome County Arts Council (BCAC), in partnership with Broome County Planning Department (BCPD), collaboratively request qualifications (RFQ) from professional artists who wish to be considered for mural design and implementation in one of three Innovation Districts, or “iDistricts” in Broome County: Binghamton, Johnson City, and Endicott. This project is funded by a $240,000.00 grant from the NYS Department of State. The project aims to create 28 mural and mosaic pieces, within the iDistricts, within a 3 year period. Project stipends will be provided to accepted applicants.
Who can apply?
Individual artists or a collaboration of artists are welcome to apply. Familiarity with working on large scale art construction, assembly, installation and quality materials for creating and maintaining vibrant and lasting murals is required. Local residents, national and international artists are encouraged to apply.
Where will the murals and mosaics be installed?
The Broome County iDistrict includes central, high traffic portions of Binghamton, Johnson City, and Endicott, NY. Please refer to the maps in the RFQ Guidelines PDF (linked above). Specific mural and mosaic sites will be determined after the artist application process is completed.
