The Downtown Evansville Economic Improvement District (EID) is seeking several artists to submit digital graphic artwork or photography for designs to be printed on vinyl wrapping that will be attached to the fence surrounding the park at Fourth and Main Streets.
Compensation: $250 for each design used (license fee; artists not responsible for producing the vinyl wrapping)
Eligibility: (none specified)
Deadline: Thursday, February 28 at 4:00 p.m. CST.
The height of the fence wrap will be 6 feet, and the width of each design will be 3 feet to 8 feet per the respondent’s design. By submitting a proposal, artists agree that their photography or design will belong to the EID for a period of up to 2 years.
Please be aware that the work may be printed on mesh or solid vinyl, depending on overall wind load. The mesh results in a lowered vibrancy of the finished image. Also, your work will have grommets inserted to attach it to the fence. These grommets will be a few inches from the top and bottom edge, and will be located approximately every 24 inches.
Branding Statement of the EID
In partnership with the Downtown Evansville Economic Improvement District (EID), Gray Loon was commissioned to define the brand for Downtown Evansville, Indiana. The process included discovery sessions with multiple key groups including civic leaders, business owners, visitors, and residents. A brand was developed that embraces Evansville’s rich history but also captures the vitality, energy, passion and strong economic growth.
“This new brand embodies 200 years of hopes and aspirations, love and death, old buildings and new, progress and retrenchment. Through all of that, strangers were welcomed into shops and restaurants, couples met and married, babies were born and funerals were held, people met at the train and bus terminals, businesses opened, and fortunes were made and lost.
“It imparts the concept that you are going to run into someone you know on Main Street, that hawks grace the skyline as they soar in our Downtown and the streets run at a 45-degree angle to the rest of the world. All while we are nestled quietly against the oxbow of the Ohio River since 1812.
“This is the story of place condensed down to not just a logo but our collection of businesses, homes, churches and civic spaces: a neighborhood, a place—which confidently acknowledges the past, but also embraces the future.”
The Selection Committee will review the submissions, and will choose up to 6 artists who will be asked to participate in the project.
The selected artist will be chosen based upon the following criteria:
