Art on Fire: Call for Artists
8/21/2019

The Bridge Progressive Arts Initiative, Charlottesville Mural Project, Albemarle County Service Authority, and the County of Albemarle seek submissions for the artistic design of fire hydrants. This initial pilot program seeks to hire up to 5 artists to creatively paint 5 hydrants in Albemarle County. Each artist awarded will receive $300 for the design and painting of the hydrant. Approved paint as well as brushes and tarps will be provided to the chosen artists.

Fire hydrant locations vary from residential to commercial. Designs may be abstract or representative. The goal of each design should be to contribute a sense of unique identity and meaningful beautification to each chosen area. Designs should be visually stimulating and contribute to and/or reflect community culture.

It is the hope of the community and key stakeholders that this project will serve as a model for future projects that utilize the power of inspired creativity to transform our perception and interaction with neighborhoods and public spaces. Designs not chosen for the initial pilot hydrants will be automatically entered for consideration for future locations.
