The City of Dublin invites qualified professional artists and student artists working under the supervision of a professional artist or art teacher to submit designs for a unique temporary art project - Storm Drain Murals. For this project, the City of Dublin is seeking artists to paint functional murals directly adjacent to 10-20 storm drain inlets throughout Dublin. Storm Drains are the initial inlets that allow for rainwater to enter local waterways before eventually flowing to the San Francisco Bay. Pollutants, such as motor oil, pet waste, and other sediment and urban chemicals, also make their way into stormwater systems. The addition of artistic murals to storm drain inlets will help raise awareness and improve water quality in local watersheds and the San Francisco Bay. The deadline to submit a proposal is November 15, 2023, by 4:00 p.m.
Artists are encouraged to be as creative as possible when approaching this project. The proposed designs should help raise awareness and improve water quality in local watersheds and the San Francisco Bay. Site-specific proposals and general proposals that the City may display at its sole discretion are acceptable. Artists are responsible for preparing, painting, and sealing the storm drain art. Because of the nature of this project, artists will be provided with the paint to be utilized.
Stipends of $500 will be provided to selected artists or artist teams. Artists may submit up to five (5) proposals and be selected for up to three (3). The stipend will be paid for each selection ($1,500 max).
