Description:

For this project, the City of Dublin is seeking artists to paint functional murals directly adjacent to 10-20 storm drain inlets throughout Dublin. This unique project would include soliciting artists/muralists to complete the design and painting of each storm drain inlet. Storm Drains are the initial inlets that allow for rainwater to enter local waterways before eventually flowing to the San Francisco Bay. Pollutants, such as motor oil, pet waste, and other sediment and urban chemicals, also make their way into stormwater systems. The addition of artistic murals to storm drain inlets will help raise awareness and improve water quality in local watersheds and the San Francisco Bay.

Artists are encouraged to be as creative as possible when approaching this project. The proposed design should help raise awareness and improve water quality in local watersheds and the San Francisco Bay. Site-specific proposals and general proposals that the City may display at its sole discretion are acceptable. Artists are responsible for priming, painting, and sealing the storm drain art.

Because of the nature of this project, artists will be provided with the paint, primer, and sealant to be utilized. The city intends to provide SUNSHIELD 3800 by Davlin Coatings, or similar. Red, yellow, blue, white, and black paint will be provided, and artists are expected to mix paint as needed to achieve desired colors.

Stipends of $500 will be provided to selected artists or artist teams. Artists may submit up to five (5) proposals and be selected for up to three (3). The stiped will be paid for each selection ($1,500 max).
