"Mosaic" Coming to South Main District

Posted By on Thu, Mar 20, 2014 at 3:47 PM

The Downtown Memphis Commission (DMC) has launched an art program called "South Main Mosaic" that will eventually bring 10 pieces of public art to the South Main neighborhood.

The DMC is asking artists within a 250-mile radius of Memphis to submit proposals on their works. Eligible mediums include sculpture, artistic lighting, murals, vacant storefront enhancements, video, and new media work. The pieces should be suitable for outdoor display and have a life expectancy of at least 18 months. The commission has a budget of $47,000 for the production of the pieces and artists fees.

A committee will then select the pieces for the show from those proposals. Those pieces will be installed on October 3 and will remain for a year. A panel of judges will select its favorite piece and the winning artist will receive $1,000.
