iDistricts Murals & Mosaics Public Art Project

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.

Stay tuned to this webpage and the Broome County Planning Department for updates on the 2022 projects.

When will the murals and mosaics begin?

The first projects are expected to begin installation in August, 2021!

Is it too late to get involved?

Buildings and Artists have been selected for 2021 and 2022. Pending artists and buildings are set for the next couple of years. There will be another call for walls for the next two years (into 2024). Send an email to information@broomearts.org if you are interested as a business owner in the iDistricts area to provide a wall space or food / supportive donation!

Who can apply to be a mural artist?

Individual artists or a collaboration of artists were 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 were 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.
