The City of Beverly Hills is seeking an artist or teams of artists to design a mural inside the entryway of the Enchanted Woods Room of the Beverly Hills Public Library. All artists interested in applying must submit a proposal and application by Friday, May 16, 2014.
“This is an exciting opportunity for artists to be featured in a historic and prestigious library. For more than 75 years, the Beverly Hills Public Library has served as a premier literary and cultural center for patrons of all ages,” says Nancy Hunt-Coffey, Assistant Director of Community
Services for Beverly Hills. “With the recent remodel of our 12,000-square-foot children’s library, the Enchanted Woods Reading Room is an extraordinary place for kids to explore, dream and discover traditions of the past as well as innovations of the future.”
Josephine Wall is an English fantasy art painter and sculptor, whose beautiful artwork is heavily inspired by Arthur Rackham and the pre-Raphaelite artists. (Her Work is Pictured Here).
Interested professional artists must submit a proposal inclusive of all project costs, including: design, travel, materials, installation, protection, and insurance. The artist selected for this project will receive $85,000 to develop original mural work at this location.
