The Gilmore Collection in partnership with Live Nation is looking to partner with local and regional artists to create public art works to cover multiple walls and garage doors on the outside of the newly built multi-use, entertainment space, 20 Monroe Live. Mural spaces will be in public areas located in one walk through alleyway and multiple outdoor walls and doors connecting The B.O.B. and 20 Monroe Live. Walls will vary in shape, size, and base material ranging from 7ft. x 14ft. to 28ft. x 50ft.
Deadline for applications is May 7, 2017. Please contact Ashlee Lambart.
20 Monroe Live is a multi-use entertainment venue with the capacity of 2,500 guests located in the heart of Grand Rapids, Michigan. Its neighbor, The B.O.B. houses multiple floors of bars, restaurants, a brewery, and a nightclub. The B.O.B. and 20 Monroe Live are connected through a skywalk allowing guests to flow between both venues. Both venues are expected to see over 700,000 visitors per year.
Themes for artworks may vary, although imagery should center around the arts and entertainment industries and/or the surrounding Grand Rapids community. Selected artists will have their pieces entered into ArtPrize 2017 under The B.O.B. or 20 Monroe Live according to location of the piece.
