Call to Artist

We could not be more thrilled to be releasing these open calls and infusing more than a half a million dollars into the Detroit arts ecosystem this summer. We are confident that these community driven projects will not only have a massive positive impact on Detroit’s built environment but will also serve to strengthen the shared community fabric that weaves us all together. Please pay close attention to the COMMUNITY VISION STATEMENT in the artist packet. This section is developed by the community and is intended to inspire your proposals for the project(s) you choose to apply for, We hope you apply to them all, and we look forward to reviewing your submissions and thank you for participating!

Cherrylawn/Littlefield Street Mural and Curb Extension Project

City Walls and Department of Public Works - Complete Streets are partnering with residents to create a safer and more connected route for kids walking/biking to Noble Elementary. This includes traffic calming features like curb extensions and street art! We're looking for artists to help design the art and paint the art with the Noble Elementary teachers and students. Let's make Cherrylawn a space that fosters a sense of community and reflects the school and neighborhood character, all while protecting the children on their way to school! This project is all about creating a connected, safe, and inclusive community.

Please download and fully read the artist packet for complete project information before you apply to the project. Project attachment. Last day to apply is Sunday, April 28, 2024
