The mural should reflect the spirit or music, musicians, and musical performance.

Subject This is a request for proposals for a mural that has a music theme to be located on the City of Dayton Transportation Center Garage. The site is located near the future home of the Levitt Pavilion, Dayton’s free outdoor amphitheater planned to open at Dave Hall Plaza in 2018. The mural should reflect the spirit or music, musicians, and musical performance. The inclusion of Dayton’s rich musical past, present, and future, as well as any other interpretation of how music plays a role in our city’s rich cultural fabric is highly encouraged. Location The City of Dayton Transportation Center Garage is located in Downtown Dayton and bounded by Jefferson, Fourth, St. Clair, and Stone streets (see map below). Specifically, the mural will be installed on the west face of the garage (along Jefferson Street) focusing on the inset cement block walls (see image on the next page). This location is across Jefferson Street from the Levitt Pavilion site. Goal To enliven the Jefferson streetscape with a mural that has a music theme, which is appropriate due to the site’s proximity to the Levitt Pavilion and other establishments that feature live music. Timeline Call for Submission Opens September 1, 2017 Submission Deadline: October 9, 2017 midnight Notification of Semi-Finalists: October 13, 2017 Final Design Deadline: October 23, 2017 Notification of Design Selection: October 27, 2017 Project Production: October 30-November 10, 2017 The proposed mural shall encompass at least the center of the three bays. That center bay is approximately 389 square feet in area, with the glass block windows not included. The left bay has the same height and width, but also has the door area. The right bay is approximately 383 square feet in area. Background Information The City of Dayton Transportation Center Garage, completed in 1973, was part of the Mid-Town Mart Urban Renewal Area. Over the years, it has primarily served patrons of the Dayton Convention Center and the Crowne Plaza Hotel. However, a number of recent developments have increased its role and importance for not just the immediate area, but all of Downtown Dayton. In addition to the Convention Center and hotel, the garage serves or has the ability to serve a number of other downtown employers, Levitt Pavilion patrons, as well as to potentially serve patrons of the Oregon District entertainment area. This puts the Transportation Garage, arguably overlooked and underutilized for decades, as now having a cornerstone role in the increased density of visitors and activity in Downtown Dayton. In association with this expanded role, the City of Dayton and its partners seek to improve the convenience, functionality, and visual impact of the garage. The garage was designed from a predominately utilitarian perspective four decades ago—and it shows. By applying relatively low-cost/high impact improvements, such as signage, lighting, and public art, we can increase usage and improve visitor experience. Eligibility Eligibility for the project is as follows: · Any amateur or professional artist or designer age 18 and older is eligible to apply. Artists under the age of 18 may apply if they are part of a team with at least one member that is 18 or older. · Applications must have primary residence within a 40-mile radius of downtown Dayton. · Applications must submit a complete proposal through the CAFÉ system (callforentry.org). · Submissions can be made by individuals, groups, classes or teams. · Submission fee is $10 per application and open to the public within the eligible geography. · Three Semi-Finalists will be selected to submit a final design. · Final Design will be selected by a committee made up of Dayton and Levitt Pavillion officials and arts professionals. · If selected, be available for a consultation with K12’s mural team in early November 2017. · If selected, sign an agreement with project organizers. Compensation · Semi-Finalists will receive a modest stipend of $125 for to their final design. · The selected artist will earn a $2,500 stipend for their design. Proposal Requirements Complete proposals shall include: 1. Application with complete contact information 2. Proposed site design – designs should be submitted as high resolution .jpg. Up to three images may be submitted from different vantage points, one of which should be rendered to scale applied to the intended building/surface. 3.

If the submission is for design only, DVAC will contract with K12 Gallery Mural Production team to install the mural. 4. Résumé or brief biography of the artist/team’s experience with references 5. Examples of other relevant work samples – one minimum image, three maximum 6.
