In Uncategorized on November 8, 2019 at 5:19 pm

Background: Artists and artist teams are invited to submit qualifications to the San Diego County Regional Airport Authority for consideration to create an original artwork design for the Admiral Boland Way Mural Project, to be sited along the San Diego International Airport’s interior roadway, adjacent to the Fixed Based Operator Building (FBO) and Wind Tunnel Building.

Opportunity Description: There is an opportunity to commission two Artists working in two-dimensional media including but not limited to painting, photography, graphic design, printmaking and drawing, to create original artwork designs to be reproduced as large-scale murals along the fence running parallel to the Wind Tunnel Building. The artwork design should add color and vibrancy to the site, and may include narrative or representational content or abstract elements distributed across the length of the mural. Content should be inspired by the airport site, and may reference the environmental conditions, culture and people, or histories of the region. Each mural will be 144’ wide by 6’ tall and will be on view for approximately 1 year.

Budget: The two selected Artist(s) will each be compensated in a total amount not to exceed $5,500 for the artist fee, final artwork design, and digital file preparation. The budget does not include printing and installation. The Arts Program staff will facilitate reproduction of the artwork imagery by a separate contractor on a durable material suitable for outdoor display. Finalists will be compensated a flat fee of $500 to develop their proposals.

Eligibility Requirements: This opportunity is open to both emerging and established professional, practicing Artists working in two-dimensional media including but not limited to painting, photography, graphic design, printmaking and drawing. Previous public art experience not required. San Diego-based artists are strongly encouraged to apply.


All Artists are required to submit their qualification at by Monday, December 9, 2019, 11:59 p.m. Qualifications will not be accepted after the December 9, 2019, 11:59 p.m. deadline.
