Stark Community Foundation & ArtsinStark: Call for Art/Request for qualifications

In celebration of 60 years of impactful community engagement, Stark Community Foundation and ArtsinStark request qualifications from artists or artist teams to create a site-specific mural that symbolically illustrates the core values and mission of Stark Community Foundation for this milestone anniversary.  To further complement the mural’s symbolism the project will include a scheduled event that allows community members to participate in its creation with the guidance of the project’s installation team and support staff. The proposed location will be facing the largest green space in downtown Canton, of which this mural will be a feature.  The reimaging of the space continues themes related to the work of Stark Community Foundation, as it is slated to become a flexible use art and community space to serve the programming needs of organizations and individuals whose work is in alignment with ArtsinStark’s new Arts & strategy.
