A Call for the Arts: Iona College Seeks Artist For Arts Center Mural

Iona College and The Council on the Arts is seeking proposals from artists for an outdoor permanent mural/two or three-dimensional work to be created, designed and installed on the wall of the Iona College Arts Center, 665 North Avenue, New Rochelle, NY.

We are seeking a local artist who would like to submit a design for consideration. The winning artist will be responsible for all materials, design, creation and installation of the work. The winning art submission will be chosen by a jury comprised of members of the Council on the Arts and be approved by the Municipal Arts Commission of New Rochelle.

The proposed artwork should celebrate and reinforce themes that are consistent with the mission of Iona College. These themes are 1) the arts 2) education and 3) diversity. This call is for original work that can be either representational or abstract and it can be either two or three dimensional. While there is no real preference to medium or materials, there must be careful consideration made regarding the location, the space (see below), the proportion and design of the Iona College Arts Center building (along with the lettering on the building) and how this work will engage the community. If necessary, the lettering “Visual Arts, Theatre, Music and Dance” can be moved if this contributes to a stronger overall design. Because the work will be permanent, exposed to the elements and must withstand powerful cleaning, the jury will be looking for a proposed work of the highest quality that strikes a balance between design, concept, durability and practicality. The submissions should be submitted digitally and include Call for Art- New Rochelle, NY in the

subject line and must contain jpeg images of the proposed work along with a written description explaining the concept as well as the medium and/or proposed use of materials. A small group of finalists will be chosen and given an opportunity to “further explain” their proposal.

Deadline for submission of proposal: Midnight, January 8, 2018

Budget: $65,000

Contact: Jennifer Morris, JMorris@iona.edu

Finalists notified: February 5, 2018

Winning proposal notified: April 1, 2018

Completion date: August 15, 2018

No submissions will be accepted after the deadline and any submissions that are missing either images or the written proposal will not be accepted. Submissions will not be returned nor will they be used by the college for any purpose.

The wall material is made of a natural stone and the maximum space to work within is 16’ x 15’ – 3“. Attached is a photo of the space, and the area within which the mural/two or three dimensional work will be installed.
