LA Wants New Murals - Let the Art Begin!

 for Wall Artists
The Department of Cultural Affairs (DCA) is seeking artists and artist teams interested in creating a permanent and/or temporary art projects for large scale, outdoor walls in the City of LA. This Request for Qualifications (RFQ) is open to professional artists working with any medium, style or technique –i.e. murals, aerosol, mosaics, paints, stencils, stickers, wheatpasting, woodblocking, light and/or video projection. 
This RFQ is open to professional artists and artist teams living and working in the County of Los Angeles. Artists must demonstrate the vision, past experience and professional qualifications required to create public art for City walls –a process that includes public presentations, production oversight and execution of artwork in the public realm.
For details and the complete Request for Qualifications, see the attached PDF.
The deadline is Monday, November 4, 2013.

Well, the legal wrangling took years, but less than a week after LA finally adopted new rules to once again allow art murals in this city, the art is already ready to begin!

The City of Los Angeles Department of Cultural Affairs just released a public call for wall artists.  Let the art begin!

The red tape and bureaucracy involved might be more than most street artists are used to, but the reward seems worth it as the projects are fully funded and the murals done by selected artists will be protected forever.

Check out the general description above, then click the jump to check out the full requirements and contact information for artist participation.

Excited to see the new art in LA.  Stay up, Los Angeles!
