Egan’s Bar, a longtime bar in Tuscaloosa in conjunction with Buffalo Rock Pepsi and the Arts and Humanities Council of Tuscaloosa are seeking proposals from artists or artist teams for the commission of a site specific outdoor mural to be installed on an existing blank concrete wall on the Egan’s bar building. Egan’s is located at 1229 University Blvd, close to the University of Alabama campus. The wall measures 62’ X 18’. Site specific artwork will be given the highest priority with the potential to: brand the space, introduce color, serve as a backdrop for photos, and provide an invitation for spectators to become part of the art experience. Please do not submit a UA or football themed proposal. Artist proposals are to include all proposed costs, such as materials, installation, artist fees, etc. Artists will be asked to develop a line itemized budget as part of the proposal submission. Affordability of the project cost will be weighted in the selection process, with a budget up to $10,000.
All artists over the age of 18 are eligible to submit and proposal.
