Call to Muralists: Dawn of the NEON

Written by NEON District.

P R O J E C T  O V E R V I E W
The public art committee of the new NEON (New Energy of Norfolk) District seeks muralists for collaborative large scale public art projects. In the community-oriented spirit of the neighborhood, selected artists will be paired with a glass, projection/light, or neon artist to collaborate, building off the muralist’s design to create works that extend off the “page” (or in this case wall). The committee is interested in how the mural can be activated at night, transforming environment and landscape of the NEON District as the sun goes down.
