Visual artists who reside in Georgia are invited to submit proposals for an innovative and colorful two-dimensional mural for the North wall of the Georgia Municipal Association’s new headquarters. Artists are encouraged to create a contemporary work that addresses both the mission, interests and scope of the Association, as well as the character, diversity and role of cities, their leaders, the work of their employees, and the citizens they serve in the context and history of Georgia’s cities.
The goals of this mural are to:
- Share the intrinsic value of Georgia’s cities on the state’s economy, agriculture, character, charm and bright energy. This mural should broaden viewers’ perspectives and awareness of the role of cities by celebrating the impact of cities as hubs of culture, diversity, innovation, centers of commerce, incubators of ideas and cradles of democracy, all of which foster the dynamism of the state.
- Connect the GMA mission and the associations three pillars: Advocacy. Service. Innovation. to its evolving slogan of “Cities United.” This mural should serve as a welcoming, positive, upbeat, energetic, non-controversial space for visitors, GMA staff members, city officials, area residents and area workers.
- Build community and a sense of pride amongst member cities across the state who visit the GMA headquarters and strive to improve working relationships with state leaders and legislators.
- Highlight the dedication that GMA has for all its member cities and articulate the association’s core values. This mural will also highlight the work and passion of a Georgia-based artist around the themes and concepts in this document and GMA guidance.
