In an initiative by the Frisco Town Council to incorporate more public art throughout Frisco, the Town of Frisco released a request for proposals (RFP) seeking an artist or a group of artists to design and install a street mural on Main Street. The intent of the mural program is to create hopeful, positive experiences that are reflective of Frisco’s community and core values, and the selected design will complement the streetscape of Frisco’s unique mountain town Main Street.
The 1,500 square-foot mural will be painted directly on the street surface (but does not need to completely cover the whole surface), and the Town will manage road closures and provide safety support for the artist during the 48-hour installation time window, which will happen in June 2021.
Artists will be selected by a committee of members of the MakeFrisco Art Group, local business owners, staff, community members, and other persons selected by the Town, based on the artistic design, craftsmanship, and how well the design reflects the stated theme of the mural to inspire hope and positivity and celebrate the resiliency of the Frisco community and quality of past work.
“The Town is committed to providing unique and accessible cultural opportunities for residents and visitors so they may find their own unique adventures and meaningful experiences in Frisco. The mural project, located in the heart of Frisco, is intended to inspire hope and positivity and celebrate the resiliency of the Frisco community,” stated Frisco Town Councilmember Melissa Sherburne.
Mural Deadline Extended to May 14, 2021
During their April 27, 2021 meeting, Frisco decided to reopen the RFP for a Main Street mural and extend the deadline to May 14, 2021.
