Call for Artists: Johnston Street Alley Mural Project

August 15, 2022

The Alabama Center for the Arts Foundation in partnership with the Decatur Downtown Redevelopment Authority and other community partners is seeking proposals for the design and creation of a mural to be located in an repurposed alleyway in the heart of downtown Decatur, Alabama. Artists are encouraged to think outside the box with their design and are free to incorporate the various elements of the building.

We are currently in the design phase of the Johnston Street Alley Project with a goal of transforming an alleyway in the heart of Decatur, Alabama’s downtown arts and entertainment district into a vibrant community gathering space. The repurposed space, flanked by historic buildings and restaurants, will include areas for outdoor dining, small events and small audience theatrical and musical performances. Located across the street from the Alabama Center for the Arts student dormitory, the alleyway will also serve as a space for art students to relax and socialize. An additional goal is for the space to showcase a variety of public art. Sculptures, murals, and revolving displays of Alabama Center for the Arts student art are just a few of the ideas being discussed.

Budget: $15,000 – $20,000 (subject to negotiation depending on overall size / complexity of mural)
