Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Mural - Call for Artists

As a continuation of the City of Albuquerque’s MuraLOVE program, the Albuquerque Arts Board and the MLK Mural Art Selection Committee announces a Call for Artists to create a mural art work for one or more concrete walls near the Martin Luther King Jr. Memorial located at Tijeras and 1st Street in downtown Albuquerque. The selection committee for this competition/commission invites artists  to propose a mural theme and mural style that furthers the awareness of Dr. King's legacy.  The mural should activate the walls of the site and complement the existing MLK Memorial. 

It is the intent of this Call for Artists to directly reach out to, and received proposals from, Black, Indigenous and Persons of Color (BIPOC) artists, as well as artists not already represented in the City of Albuquerque Public Art Collection and artists who have not ever applied for, or received, a public art commission.  

DEADLINE: To be considered, all application materials are due by 11:59 pm local (MST) time, Sunday, February 14, 2021, and must be submitted on the City of Albuquerque Public Art MLK Mural Submissions website.
