The City of Roeland Park, Kansas, is requesting submissions for a mural specialist to supervise the 2021 Mural Project. This project is for a mural to be painted at West 47th Street and Roe Lane. This mural will be part of a collection of 7 themed murals that convey aspects of the history and culture of Roeland Park. The overarching theme is “Uniquely Rooted” which is the city’s motto.
There will be a centered mural of a tree with roots that reach out and become frames around each of the other six panels. The separate mural themes are:
--Pre-history (before the city was formed)
--History (who and how the city was developed)
--Community and Business
--Families and Pets
The supervising artist will provide a resume of his/her works to be considered for this position. The position will pay $3,000.00 for the duration of the project, to be completed July-September 2021. The 7 participating muralists will choose one of the months to complete their work. Supervising will not be a daily project but one wherein the supervising artist will monitor the muralists work and liaise regularly with designated members of the Roeland Park Arts Advisory Committee.
It will be the duty of the supervising artist to ensure:
--the selected content is delivered in the final mural
--that proper materials are used to ensure quality work
--that muralists are using safe working procedures and equipment
--that artists meet their deadline
--that all artists work effectively together
-- the Roeland Park Arts Advisory Committee is regularly advised of progress and concerns
Applications shall be submitted to for consideration.
