The West Hill Neighborhood Organization is seeking a Northeast Ohio mural artist to design and paint a mural in Akron’s historic West Hill neighborhood.
The new mural will be located at the bottom of the hill at Locust Street and Glendale Ave and will be painted on the retaining wall across from the entrance to historic Glendale Cemetery.
Artists are encouraged to submit past work examples/portfolios by June 8, 2023, to be considered to be one of three artists to be paid $250 honorariums for the creation of a sketch of a proposed mural idea.
Summit Artspace is interested in the many ways in which BIPOC+ artists impact our communities through their art. One artist will be selected to receive a $1,000 stipend to support the creation of a solo exhibition in Summit Artspace’s Horizon Gallery. Click here to apply.
