Call to Artists for Design and Development of the City of Columbia’s First Public Mural
The City of Columbia, TN is seeking a qualified muralist to paint a unique mural at the gateway to the Columbia Arts District, the first public art commissioned by the city. The mural will be located at the main gateway to the District, the intersection of S. Garden St./Carmack Blvd. on a sculptured, serpentine-shaped wall. Along with the mural, the serpentine shaped wall and mural will combine for one the most unique displays of public art in the state and region. The public mural’s footprint at the Columbia Fire Station No. 1 property inside the Columbia Arts District will rest in between Hwy 31 (Carmack Blvd/Nashville Hwy) and the site of the future Firefighter’s Park, the park planned to commemorate the upcoming 2018 Columbia Fire Department’s 150 Year Sequential Celebration. The mural will be two sided. The side facing Fire Station No. 1 will commemorate the Columbia Fire Department Sequential’a 150 years providing fire service to Columbia citizens, upcoming sequential in 2018. The second side of the mural facing Carmack Blvd (Hwy 31/Nashville Hwy) will require that the artist work with a design work group to develop a design proposed to be related to the Columbia Arts District. Please share this information with muralists and artists you know who may be interested in this transformative project. For more information on the project and to submit a proposal, go to

Call for Entries: Photography That Matters
Billions of images are created and disseminated daily through social media, television, print, and film, all competing for attention. Navigating and consuming media can mean an overwhelming barrage of images and information.
Sometimes, though, images of true import cut through the noise, helping us better understand our world: an image of a place threatened by development or industry, for example, an endangered species in its natural habitat, protests happening around the world, people implementing change in a specific area, or an image that leaves a lasting impact because of who, or what, it captures.
The Flagstaff Arts Council is seeking submissions for an exhibition of high quality artistic black and white photographs that matter. Images should cause the viewer to think, feel, or act.
