PROJECT DESCRIPTION

  • The City of Hallandale, in partnership with ArtServe, proudly presents a mural project which will enhance and elevate the community through the arts.
  • The Foster Park mural area is composed of 20 walls, each of which are 6’ tall.
  • Each mural must cover the entire surface of the wall, from the ground to the fascia, approximately 6’ high and approximately 12’ total width.
  • Artists should be aware of the potential impact to murals from salt, weather, and fading from the sun. They should ensure the use of outdoor paint and appropriate coating and sealing.
  • Through this Call to Artists, ArtServe intends to enrich the aesthetic landscape and cultural experience for residents and visitors of the City of Hallandale. A number of individual artists or teams may be selected to independently paint assigned sections of the wall. The murals should be reflective of the City of Hallandale and the wonders of nature and South Florida’s coastal address and environment.

Electricity may not be available at the site. If artists require electricity or other accommodations, requests may be considered on a case by case basis. There is no guarantee that these requests will be fulfilled.
