Overview of mural project

  • Visually: each mural would be an iPhone taking a photo. Each iPhone is held by hands of a different skin color. The area outside the phone would reflect the oppression and injustices from the past and the screen of the phone would show the future vision and prayer. For example,  seeing a building on fire (outside of the iPhone screen) but the screen of the phone shows the building restored and people feel safe and at peace – artist can also choose to leave the space outside the phone blank.
  • The murals would be an expression of prayer that reflects the Lake and Nicollet: Prayer and Vision.
  • Memorial to George Floyd, imagery of burnt buildings done as a memorial to the neighborhood, references to the theme, Bible references or ancient texts for healing the land are all welcome
  • Also visions of what Lake and Nicollet can look like in the future (Kmart is being demolished and Nicollet is being reconnected at the end of this summer).
  • The owner of the building asks for no political or BLM messaging or references, especially any wording. He will also take the option of painting over anything he thinks was not approved after Sunday.
  • Each artist is responsible for his/her own supplies and equipment. We may be able to have some scaffolding there but it would have to be shared.

Deadlines

  • Sketch submissions and finance requests. Artist will not be confirmed until a Sketch is made by submission to peter@sourcemn.org.
  • Mural begin by June 15 if possible – June 22 at the latest.
  • Mural deadline to be finished is June 26 or at June 27 event.
  • We currently have a budget of $200-$500 per mural possibly more. we are trying to raise go fund me funds. We encourage each artist to have their own go fund me as well. Hopefully we will be able to do more.

Specifics: Mural Overviews

  • Each section is 30′ x 16′ – we wanted each mural to be framed like it is on a iPhone and then having two hands on it like taking a photo and hands being different shades of skin
  • there are 11 sections, 8 are a full 30’ wide by 16” high. 3 are lower because they are under the central awning.
