The Greenfield Community Association’s Public Spaces Stewardship Committee, in cooperation with Hazelwood community, is calling for mural designs for the water pump house at the corner of Greenfield Avenue and Irvine Street. This is where Greenfield and Hazelwood communities meet.
The dual purposes of this mural are beautification and way-finding at this intersection, a gateway to our communities. Designs should name both communities and direct travelers by vehicle/bike. (See original mural above for example.)
This project is open to City of Pittsburgh Residents; artists from Greenfield and Hazelwood are especially encouraged to apply.
Compensation is not provided. However funding for supplies up to $500 and some labor are provided by community volunteers, and the selected artist or group will be identified in all literature.
The selection process will be by community vote. The artist or group selected must also present their proposal to the Pittsburgh Public Art Commission according to the requirements of their review process and gain approval before any work can begin.
The deadline for the application to this RFP is December 1, 2016. Designs meeting criteria and approved by the Public Spaces Committee will be published online by January 15 for a community vote selection process.
Notification of winner will be made by March 1. Implementation of work will be summer 2017.
Questions may be directed to firstname.lastname@example.org. We welcome your designs!
