Downtown Little Rock Partnership seeks artists for mural

“InspiredLR” is a public art initiative developed by the Public Spaces subcommittee of the Downtown Little Rock Partnership (“DLRP”). The goal is to encourage artistic expression and foster a greater appreciation for art in our community.

Arkansas artists are invited to submit concepts or proposals for a site-specific art installation on the east wall of the Union National Plaza in Little Rock, Arkansas, as a focal point of Downtown Little Rock.

As part of our public art strategy, DLRP is dedicated to collaborating with Arkansas artists to present public art that enhances our City’s imaginative capacity, enlivens our neighborhoods, contributes to economic vitality, sparks civic exchange, and enhances community connection.

All artists residing in the State of Arkansas who have prior public art mural experience are eligible to apply. Work must be durable and suitable for outdoors with the ability to withstand the elements of our Arkansas climate as well as interaction with the general public.

The artist will be selected by our committee on April 30, 2019, and the installation must be completed by June 30, 2019.

Architeaser – April 5

Wednesday’s Architeaser was from the old Union Bank Building. Though better known for the black and white pinstripes of the upper stories, the columns supporting the building are features of the lower floors.

Today’s features brick and tile work. Often a dash of color stands out, but these colorful accents are often overlooked.
