We are so excited to get started working on the 2019 Community Art Project! This year, we will be coming together as a community led by artists, to paint 7 of our city’s crosswalks!
We have done some preliminary work on this project, including:
*decided on general concept of Murals at our Feet project, including research on project, parameters for artists and teams, general theme
*Met with Waupaca City Council to present idea
*met with City and street department officials to work out fine details including safety and design concerns
We held a “call to artists” meeting on Thursday, March 14, and had a great turnout of creative enthusiastic artists who are going to submit their designs to be considered for one of the 7 crosswalks.
Artists will submit designs that are geometric in nature. Designs should be basic enough for a non-artist to be able to participate in painting. Teams of painters will be assembled under each chosen artist, and a schedule assigned for their selected crosswalk painting day. Artists can choose team members, and she will also assign interested people to teams. This is a community event, and everyone will enjoy meeting new people!
Are you an interested artist? Would you like to submit a design to be considered? Print off the guidelines/submission form below! If you have any further questions, contact us! (via “contact us tab” on this website, or via our Facebook page!)
Below are the schematics for the 7 crosswalks that we are going to be painting. Use these as reference in creating your design.
Submissions are due by May 1, artists will be selected and notified soon after that, and first painting will be starting in June! We will paint crosswalks in June, July, and during ARTicipation Week leading up to Arts on the Square!
